How about the one where i forgot to tell everyone that i actually won Sewvivor!!!
Yep, i won. And to be honest folks, it's been a couple weeks now and it still hasn't sunk in. I won.
Holy crap i won! Yippeeeee!
I'm am so very thankful to each and every one of you. It was a long journey and i never would have made it without all your support and encouragement. I've had a few people ask if i would do it all again, and i most definitely would! That being said, it was stressful, very stressful. I truly didn't think i would make it as far as i did.
When i started Sewvivor i had a number of secret projects on the go as well as some other projects that all kind of fell to the side. And i kept telling myself that it would be fine and when i was eliminated i would get back to my regular sewing. And then i'd make it through to the next round. And the cycle kept going. I'm still trying to get caught up! And that is the only negative thing that i experienced with this whole adventure. And it's entirely my fault. I guess i really could use some time management help around here, i've never been any good at getting things done on time!
Now i don't want anyone thinking that i'm not grateful, i'm not complaining, i'm just keeping it real here ;) It was an absolutely amazing experience and i've made some truly great friends. One in particular that would have been worth it all even if i had been eliminated the first round. Thanks so much Angie for cheerleading me to the finish line!
I'm insanely proud of the projects i made and while it was stressful, having the prompt and deadline guiding my designs was actually a nice change for me. You all know that i normally just do what i want and if it happens to get finished it's like a miracle around here. So to be able to work at the top of my game and actually finish something?!! I'm as shocked as you all :)
And i have to say, i'm ecstatic about the prizes! My first one showed up the other day and man it's awesome!
Coats and Clark sent the huge pack of threads and Free Spirit fabrics obviously had someone checking me out because all this AMH loveliness came without anyone asking what i would like! Love me some AMH! I haven't really worked with knits all that much and i don't own a serger so any advice is greatly appreciated. I'm thinking i'll use the two prints in the middle for leggings. The pink Cracking Codes print on the left is super soft, so soft i thought it was flannel. I'm wondering if i could back a quilting cotton quilt with it? Has anyone ever done that? Though i do have all my little guys onesies from when they were babies and i've been wanting to cut them into a nice patchwork throw for me... maybe i'll save it for that? I don't know.
So yeah, things are still busy around here and i'm still working on secret sewing but i'll try and pop in more often, Instagram is where you'll find me on a more regular basis though, just sayin'!! @snippets101 ;)
High fives for me for winning Sewvivor, and high tens for all you guys for your help getting me there! You guys are the best!
Oh, and for those interested i am making up a pattern for the hexie cushion, i've never written a pattern before so if anyone has any sites that may help or any tips on what you like or don't like in a pattern i would be eternally grateful!
I'm also working with someone to put out a pattern for my Carrousel quilt in the new year so stay tuned for that!
And i'll be having a giveaway and tutorial coming up the end of the month!!
So much to do!!
