Goodies and FO

Well Ravelympics are well underway....I am on a good pace (I think) and will show you tomorrow where I'm at!  Yesterday I wore my new skirt to church!!!  No one commented on it, but I enjoyed wearing it and liked how it looked!  The hand sewing on the inside wasn't too bad!  I definitely will make this again...maybe the other style.  So now I am keeping my eye out for cute skirt fabric!  

If you need/want more details on the skirt let me know and I will try my best!  I had a couple of sewing projects for my Secret Prayer Sock Swap package and I got those done (except for a hand sewn detail on one of them)  It felt good to sew again, but it feels good to have the machine put back up again.  My kitchen table was a mess!

Last week I also won another contest!  Aunt Kathy has been doing a contest a week (for quite a while) and last week I won the knitting gadget jackpot!  Look at all these goodies!  Go say hi to her (and in the process you will enter yourself in the contest for a really cute needle holder made in sheep fabric)


Well today I'm working on my shawl....and doing some math...only 2 weeks of summer left....must enjoy every minute! Have a super day!  :)

Lovely skirt. I bet if people knew you made it they'd be impressed. Your much more reserved than I am. I walk into the building and say, "Hi, like my skirt... I made it!". I agree about sewing making a mess. My knitting never makes me feel like I need to put away but when I am sewing the whole downstairs suffers. :)
Go Team!

It is pretty indeed.

Congrats on your win!

It looks great! Hopefully one day I can have a permanent place to have my sewing machine set up. I'd sew more if it wasn't a pain to drag the sewing machine out. :)

Leah the skirt looks great, of course the model looks better if you ask me. Nice job.

Glad you liked your prize package

Cute skirt!!! I need to get sewing again. I have a few projects in mind but they are waiting until I finish my Ravolympics projects.
