Winner of the November/December In Stitches sew-along: Flossieteacakes with that couture apron. Isn’t that shot fantastic? Nice work on the sewing and photography. {Note to self: take more time to set up shots. Look how nice your projects can be displayed if you don’t get impatient!}

New book for 2008: Simple Gifts to Stitch. We took a poll. You may have voted, you may not. Either way — we’re pretty sure you are going to love this book.

New project: The Button Scarf, with a photo due in the new photo pool by February 28. I need to sew a couple birthday gifts for cold weather friends, so this frankly, works out perfectly.

Finny & Donk's Sewing Adventure!

New name for this fabulous sew-along: Finn and Donk’s Sewing Adventure. Grab your backpacks and don’t forget your thimbles, this is going to be another fabulous ride through the wild land of Domesticity. We’ll be sewing projects with random winners selected from the pool — so make your photos stand out and feel free to email us with any questions. Thanks so much for playing along!

~Kelli, aka Donk
and my northern California bff: Jessica, aka Finny

P.S. Did you hear about that fabulous Amy Butler contest that you may already have a project completed you could enter? Check out Finny’s blog for details.

  2. I think that apron is fabulous. Understated and elegant. Congrats to the winner! Here’s to a new book and a great year of sewing!

  3. Love the apron!! Just ordered my book… can’t wait to start. Thanks to you and Finny for organizing πŸ™‚

  4. Sounds like fun! I was keeping my fingers crossed that one of the books I already had would win (I even voted), but this book does look like a great one. Can’t wait to see what everyone does… maybe I can save up some change and join the fun sometime soon. πŸ™‚

  5. Yippee! My Mom gave me Simple Gifts for Christmas and I’ve been anxious to get started on some of the projecdts.

    I am so excited about the new sew-along and have gone ahead and joined the new Flickr group. I’ll order the book in a few minutes.

    Thanks, Kelli and Finny, for hosting another promising year of fun and challenges.

  7. Aw, that is definitely a great project photo. Sharp looking apron, too!

    Woohoohoo! I’m so looking forward to tagging along on this new sewing adventure. I can’t wait for my book to arrive so I can dig in…and then start working on the project around Valentine’s Day. πŸ˜‰

  8. I grabbed the book today from Amazon. Looking forward to joining in on the fun this time!

  9. happy belated new year, sweetie. hope that 2008 is filled with magic and joy– i know that it will be!
    and i have been drooling over simple gifts to stitch. such a great choice. i am determined to get in my stitching early this semester, before finals madness, so looking forward to joining in! xo

  10. Just left Finny a comment about the book. Someone mentioned Buy.com and when I checked there I found:
    The book went from a rank of 1175 yesterday to 6 today (up 19,483%). I’m guessing that you two can take credit for that! πŸ™‚

  11. I so want to join but I can’t commit. Hmmm…that is ironic.

  12. Ok….I did buy the book!!! πŸ˜‰

    And how to avoid marrying a jerk. They are an interesting combo.

  13. Sounds like fun! I just might try joining in this one.

  14. Yeah! I ordered my copy of the book yesterday. Can’t wait to see what the scarf looks like. Looking forward to sewing with everyone. Thanks to both of you for organizing this. Now I just need to figure out how to transfer that logo onto my blog.

  15. I joined the flickr site and plan to get the book and get going very soon! I just saw on Buy.com that if you use google shopping cart for the first time you get $10 off! That means I can get this book for $6.66! Yeah! Happy dance! Thanks for so much inspiration!

  16. P.S. I have a Bernina, not a Singer, but I am not a snob, to each her own. πŸ™‚
