Finished OAL... Finally!

And in the nick of time!

Man! I should be calling this the procrastination project! For awhile there, I was patting myself on the back, telling myself it was okay not to finish. After all, it's only failure, prizes and a bit of pride at stake... ... ...

The Dukes of Hazzard Shirt

It was my son's birthday and him being a big fan of The Dukes of Hazzard, (the old TV show), I made him up a Dukes of Hazzard shirt.

Getting Ready for the Outfit Along

I don't know if you heard, but Andi from Untangling Knots and Lauren from Ladybird are hosting a sewing/knit along called a Outfit Along or a OAL. Two of my favorite blogging crafters teaming up! Plus motivation of a completed outfit when it's all said and done! Joining this OAL is a no-brainer! (This means you should also join... if you haven't already.)

I'm going with the Myrna cardi pattern and happily received my Miss Babs yarn in the mail on friday. I went with the glorious Squash Blossom. Got to tell you couldn't be happier with this yarn! If you want to feel spoiled buy some of this stuff!

I think for the sewing pattern I'm going to use Cami dress by Pauline Alice. I've had this pattern for ages and need some motivation to start the muslin. Think I'm going to change the skirt though. Maybe go with the pleat option that Lauren mentioned she'll be demonstrating in the sew along.

As you see I got some lemon fabric... ... ... Ooooo a lemon dress for summer... ... ... Oh yeah, its going to be awesome!

A Little Selfless Knitting

A new local yarn store opened up in town and I knitted one of Rebecca Danger's monster chunks, (a free pattern you can download here) as a gift. The yarn store is sponsoring/participating in a collecting knit items for the families affected by the Oso mudslide, and I made some squares for the afghan/blanket project. Feels pretty good to use something I enjoy for others.

My New Safire Cardigan

When I found the fabric for this dress, I snagged up some yarn for a cardi. The yarn is a very nice, vintage, acrylic blend I found at the thrift store.

Sew Dolly Clackett Wrap-up

Well, today is the last day of the Sew Dolly Clackett challenge and I have to say I'll miss it. This is the first dress contest I've participated in and boy did I have fun! I'm still surprised I was able to knock out five dresses and get them posted! Lets see if I can keep the blog momentum up with posting my makes.
