Finny and Donk’s Sewing Adventure, II

March 3rd


Dear Finny,

Sewing Slacker, reporting for duty. I must confess — I haven’t been sewing much lately. I am pretty sure my copy of Simple Gifts to Stitch has a nice layer of dust and I have no idea what I’ll select for the next project.
Don’t you love having me as your partner in this little sew along?
The fundraiser went well. My mom is flying home to Texas today. I’m getting my personal life back in order now that I’m not working insane hours. So, tonight! I will post the project. Promise.
In the meantime, how awesome are these entries to the January/February challenge?


Thank you for selecting such a deserving winner for the scarf project. That scarf is beautiful and I’m rather fond of Lynn. Too bad it is already 80 degrees in Phoenix. My window of scarf-wearing weather has been slammed shut and the air conditioning is coming on soon.

Hope you and that fabulous garden are doing well!

  1. Glad the fundraiser went well and now you can relax a bit!!
    The scarves are all great – it’s so fun to look at how many different people interpreted the same pattern.

  2. Yay! So glad the fundraiser went well. You and finny are too nice. I can’t believe how different all the scarves look!

  3. Happy to hear the fundraiser was a hit! I knew it would be since you were involved! 🙂

  4. Yay for some relaxing. Glad to hear the fundraiser went well. Thanks for showing off my scarf 😉 I really love Lynn’s too!

  5. I love that scarf! How cute and simple! 🙂

  6. Hope your fundraiser was a success! My, you all have fun on your sewing adventures. 🙂 I need to get that sewing machine of mine–and that digital camera! All these artistic intentions of mine. Meanwhile, I’ll read up a storm and continue saving for my 2 dream purchases this year!

  7. Congrats on getting through a successful fundraiser – I bet you’re ready to take a load off!

    I love that everyone took the pattern in a different direction. And that no one was offended when I was like, “Faux furs?” Um, no.


  8. So happy to hear that your fundraiser went well. Lynn’s scarf is beautiful and is a deserving winner. Creativity reigned on this project. Sooo many pretty entries.

  9. I LOVE those pics of the giraffos! Sounds like you have a pretty great mom – especially considering you got a massage in the midst of all the craziness. My mom was a home ec teacher for years, and I still never learned how to sew… I’m terribly jealous of those who can and I’m excited to see your project. Glad you’re getting a break now!

  10. Yay!!! Im ready for project #2.

    And I loved the giraffo post so much! Thanks for making me smile from ear to ear.

  11. I am so lame I totally forgot about the sewing adventure! I will try to do better the next project. I just could never come up with a good idea for a scarf, since are almost into AC weather also. Actually I have had the AC on recently.
