We had a great Christmas, spending time with family and friends, and Sadie LOVED opening her presents. Really, is there any other option when it comes to presents? Of course she's gonna love opening them! (and playing) The hit was her Aquadoodle...really it was a hit with everybody. I saw almost every member of my family stop and play with it throughout the day. lol!
But anyways...I got some really fun sewing books:
The middle one; "Sewing for Dummies" (haha) was my brother's gag gift to me. The joke's on him though, cause I read through most of the book on Christmas Day and learned quite a few tidbits. I can't wait to dive into the other books, but I will be quite busy in the month of January. Why? Well, remember that sewing related thing I was so excited and nervous about?
It's called Project Run and Play!
I'm taking this straight from the site:
Project Run and Play is the blogger's version of Project Runway, but for kids! Each week, the designers compete to create the best outfit (with a tutorial) based on a theme. A panel of "celebrity" judges awards them a score of 1 to 10, and then a reader's poll is opened. Readers are allowed to vote once each week for the design they like the most, and at the end of the week, the score is tallyed. The winner is announced (and their tutorial is posted), and the person with the lowest votes is "sent home."
Fun, right? I am so excited to participate in this! Only, go check out the other participants.
These are some heavy hitters in the sewing blog arena. Now do you understand my nervousness?
I just hope I make it past the first week, at least. Oh please, wish me luck. :}
