Start spreadin' the news....!

I'm entering todaaaaayyyyy!!!!

Have you heard? The best ever sew-along is announced over at Lucky Lucille,
The Spring for Cotton sewalong! YAY!

I participated in last years Sew for Victory, and had a hoot! If you didn't see it, I made my Lobster playsuit. I also was a part of the Fall for Cotton challenge, and loved that one too, even if I didn't finish in time or ever posted decent photos of the dress. No matter :)

This sewalong was honestly perfect timing, as I need a kick up the backside to tackle dress sewing again, in time for warmer weather. I have an annual trip coming up in late May, with the Norwegian Sportscar Club, and need some great outfits for it.

I wore some me-mades on last years trip and got lots of compliments, and that is always fun. Here I am in my Lobster suit, and although I have no photographic evidence of me IN our car, you'll just have to take my word for it. We always have a lot of fun on these trips, and it is a highlight of the season.

The lady on the right is also a sewing fanatic, so
naturally, we had lots to talk about!

Our little trooper, who takes us to all kinds of
lovely locations.

Hanging out, looking very cold.
Which I was. This is the 2013 trip.

So, are you all entering the sewalong? I am! Even got the fabric already, just need the perfect pattern. I have a 40s dress in mind, hoping I'll have something suitable in my pattern collection :)
Let the planning begin!


  1. Sounds like fun! I look forward to seeing what you make :D

  2. Kanskje det kunne vært noe...... Trenger litt inspirasjon for å komme i siget kjenner jeg. "Norwegian Sportscar Club" som i Norsk Sportsvognklubb?

    1. Jaaaaa! Bli med! Ja, det er NSK ;) Kjenner du kanskje noen der? Eller kanskje du er med selv?

    2. Er faktisk medlem, men det må vel kalles støttemedlem ;-) Hadde en Austin Healy en gang i tida sammen med han jeg var gift med. Moro med sportsbil da, men nå er det nærmeste jeg kommer Toyota Landcruiser. Har beholdt medlemskapet, for man vet jo aldri......

  3. I am going to check it out -- cotton is always great to sew with!

    1. Yes, you have to join, it's great fun! There might be prizes ;)

  4. I'm in! I'm hoping to sew my sixties dress by this weekend. :)
