In addition to the #2017MakeNine sewing and knitting challenge, I’ve just signed up for the #EasterSpringDress2017 sew along hosted by Akram of Akram’s Ideas and Judith of Judith Dee’s World.
I already have the bonnet, which I have never worn – long story, will explain one day – the fabric and most of the notions. When I dig them out from the darkest depths of my fabric stash Indiana Jones style, I will show you. I have a pattern in mind too, again I will show you in another post shortly.
The deadline is Easter Sunday, 16 April 2017, (I believe the absolute deadline is Tuesday 18th April, but I want to wear my frock on the actual day!) so if you would like to participate you still have time, but maybe start thinking about putting your skates on.
For more information, please head over to judithdeesworld.com and akramsideas.com. Please find below links to Judith’s and Akram’s YouTube channels.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to seeing all your wonderful Easter sewing creations.
Wait! It’s March already? How did that happen?
Well, to be honest, I’m happy that March is finally here, because it means that Spring is officially around the corner. It’s been a long, cold and dull Winter. But now hope Springs anew and we can all start acting on our plans for the season of hope and renewal.
This month is Spring Clean month, which means at CT HQ, there will be a lot of clearing out KonMari style, a lot of decorating Hygge style and tons of fashion and dressmaking, my style!
I have actually made a start on my life spring cleansing, focusing mainly on my new look blog and social network. But March for me is the official kick off of Spring and all related merriment. So please join me as I stitch, hammer, bake, knit and paint my way through March.
