(the view from my sewing table)
I owe it all to you and Diet Coke.

Oh my goodness! I really can't believe it but I won the first week of Project Run and Play! Thanks to you guys of course. I really appreciate everybody supporting the competition even if you didn't vote for me. All the blog links and facebook mentions and tweeting to get the word out to get as many people in on this whole thing makes it so much fun. So thank you.

I will be back on Friday to show you my next look. Its a boy themed look and I am having fun (and getting my hands dirty) making it. Can you guess what I am doing? I've never made anything clothing-wise for Ollie so I am really excited about it.

And because I won this week, I will be posting a tutorial on Project Run and Play about how to make all those crazy scallops on my Every Color in the Box Dress on Wednesday, so look for me there.

For all I know I could be out next week so I am going to enjoy this win while I can! And sewing like crazy. Enjoying and sewing...that's what I'll be doing this week.

Thank You! Thank You!


  1. Congratulations and thank you so much for stopping by and Leaving such a VERY sweet comment... Even if I was in it I am sure you would still be in the Winning Spot... Your dress came out LOVELY!!! :)

  2. congrats! Good luck keeping up with projects and life and have fun sewing :)

  3. WAHHHHOOOOOO!!! You DESERVE it! Yours was by far the best! :) Can't wait to see what other beauties you whip up.

  4. Last night I dreamed I saw a drawing of Ollie's outfit. I obviously don't share your talent for pattern making, because it was BUTT. And it had a cape.

  5. Love your dress and your model looks so sweet! Congratulations, you totally deserved to win!
    And I'm sure you'll recycle those diet coke cans to ensure that the world will be beautiful for your children and theirs ;)

  6. I loved your little man tuck outfit and just voted for it! Thanks for sharing your talent with us all.
