SWAP Finale

The winners of the SWAP contest will be announced on SG tomorrow. With that in mind, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that has followed along with my SWAP progress over the last few months. I truly appreciate all the visitors and all the kind comments - it still amazes me that anyone is actually interested in my sewing. I started this blog as a journal for myself - as a way of keeping track of my sewing. I like having a record of my projects and my progress.

Over the next few months, I will be changing gears. I will be venturing away from formal wear and diving into spring/summer work and casual clothes. I have been making plans for the tons (literally) of lighter fabrics in my stash. I am still quite smitten with all my vintage patterns (and my modern patterns with vintage flavour), so much of what I sew will have a 50s/60s flair. So, stick around if you're interested.

As a goodbye to SWAP, I wanted to post a few last photos that didn't make the cut for the Timmel SWAP page:
