I can hardly believe it’s already Saturday. We are leaving in a few weeks for the rest of the summer, and I’ve spent the last couple of weeks in a frenzy of sewing, photographing, writing blog posts, and reading books in preparation for a summer away. Well, the reading wasn’t really in preparation of anything–it’s really just out of obsession. I just finished Insurgent by Veronica Roth and am now completely desperate for October to arrive and with it Alegiant, the third and final installment in her Divergent series. Haven’t read them yet? Get started now! If you like young adult novels like The Hunger Games, you’ll love these. I’m desperate for more of Tris and Tobias!
So, wait. Why am I talking about books when I’m supposed to be talking about sewing patterns and giveaways? I must have gotten my loves confused.
Since I’m already sidetracked, I feel the need to show you a sneak peak of my current work-in-progress. See, I’m still sewing even though you haven’t seen my stuff in a while! Soon, friends, soon.
Now back to giveaways! Let’s do a quick recap of last week’s Best of Summer sewing pattern reviews, then I’ll reveal the winners for last Saturday’s giveaway, and THEN I’ll open up entries for this week’s giveaway. Mmkay? Last week week had some excellent reviews from:
