OffLine - For Now

Well, so much for that refashion I had lined up.  Unfortunately something personal has come up and I will be unable to post to this space for about two weeks.  I will hopefully be back to working on my refashions and garments for Self-Stitched September '11 as soon as I can.  I will miss my sewing machine.  Take care readers.

Self-Stitched September 2011

I have watched these challenges go down in the past and have been envious of the creativity of the participants.  I haven't been doing much sewing lately, but why let reality get in the way of a good challenge?  Some people go all the way with all self-made clothing, others endeavor one item per day.  I will be in the latter group.  And I am including refashioned items as eligible.  We'll see how I do, have to get sewing!

'I, Erin of, sign up as a participant of Self-Stitched-Sept '11. I endeavour to wear one item that has passed through my hands, refashion or new, each day for the duration of September 2011'

If you are interested in learning more about this challenge you can click on the button to the right to link back to Zoe's blog.  She is the lovely lady who organizes these fantastic challenges.  A chance to really put my willingness to wear my own work to the test.  I'm looking forward to it.  I'm just glad I have some time to work on some items.
