I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas! I know I did. It was crazy with family, but so much fun to see everyone! My oldest told me that Christmas was "off the hook" and my oldest daughter even loved her joke gift (a table cloth we decided to wrap up for giggles).
But now with Christmas over, I'm looking at what the New Year will be bringing.

I don't remember exactly when I found the sewing competition. Looking back through, I remember parts of season 3 and 4, but it wasn't until season 5 that I really got into it. 

At the beginning of season 6 I saw the the call for entries and asked about it. I was told that I would need a blog or someway to upload photo's, so a blog was born. 
That entry is my very first blog post.

I had no idea how much I would grow and accomplish in one year.

Here are my link ups for all the seasons since so far:

Season 7:

I love the sewing world and the amount of information that has been shared with me. Before, I had no clue how to install a zipper or make welt pockets. No clue how to do a button placket and quite frankly, I was petrified of buttons. I didn't even know half the sewing terms and found that I had been pronouncing things so incredibly wrong (think applique, I was pronouncing it 'uh-pleek' instead of 'a-pli-kay', talk about embarrassing.)
I've made some of my most best friends and I am so incredibly grateful to have this chance to participate.

I also hope that this is just the beginning to a whole new adventure. I have so many things I want to do and share with everyone. I really can't wait to show you what I have up my sleeve for this season! 

Too, who would love to win a copy of the Saffron Twirl Dress? 

I'm giving away one copy of it to a lucky reader. Give-away will end on January 3rd.

Thank you so much for this opportunity!!
