When I started blogging I really didn't have any idea what I was doing (and still don't mostly) or why I was doing it! It's been an interesting and sometimes frustrating journey so far, but overall very enjoyable.
I've met some lovely people, both virtually and in real life, taken part in several sew-a-longs and joined in some interesting discussions.
I can definitely say the quality of my sewing has improved this last year, I'm far more likely to spend time on the preparation and finishing than I was previously and I think that this shows in the quality of my finished items.
I've learnt new techniques ~ bound buttonholes for example ~ and also the "proper" way of doing things ~ this week I put in my first truly invisible zip.
Here's a selection of things I've made this year that I'm particularly proud of.
|Laurel dress, Vogue 8548 coat, Mother of the Groom outfit,|
Simplicity 1652 dress, Cat sewn image, Ramona sweater
The sewn image I give away will be unframed, but mounted and ready to frame. The reason I've decided to give an unframed picture is that I know I can safely post it anywhere in the world without a frame getting broken. The picture itself will be up to 8 inches by 10 inches in size.
All you have to do is comment below by Monday 1st July and tell me what you'd like a picture of.
Giveaway is now closed, thanks to all who entered.
I'll then randomly pick one commenter and contact them for a bit more information. Please leave your email address if it's going to be difficult for me to find your contact details easily.
Here are some examples of what I've done so far to give you some ideas, but you can choose what you like.
This giveaway is open to anyone, no matter where in the world you are located.
All that remains for me to do is to say thank you to everyone who has read, commented, supported and suggested over the last year. Your comments really do mean a lot to me.
