Skirt Month!

Happy May everyone! Ok, can I just say how excited I am that it's Skirt Month? I recently found Sew Mama Sew's blog and was pleasantly surprised to see that they have Free Fabric Fridays! And a super cool flickr group where you can win a $25 gift certificate to the Sew Mama Sew store (which is super cool and I just bought some stuff from). But the kicker was skirt month!

It's genius! I just got Lotta Jansdotter's book and Sew What! Skirts for my birthday from my wonderful sister and her husband, so I'm all set. I may even have enough fabric in my stash for all of this...

So I think everyone should celebrate skirt month and make a skirt. Here is a link to the post and here is a link to the new flickr group just for skirt month. I'm going to set a goal of at least 2 skirts this month. In fact, I'm so sure about this that I'm going to add them to my progress bars right now!!

(Ok, I realize that I sound like an advertisement for Sew Mama Sew, but really, Kristin has no idea who I am. I am just a fan of the store and all her genius free ways to keep me going back. Oh, and I'm super jealous of my cousin... I told her about the blog and she won last friday's free fabric friday! I've never won....)

Yeah, I love Sew Mama's blog, too. I recently got those two books, too. Very nice books.

I love that blog too. It always has great ideas. I'm thinking I need a new skirt, but not before I finish my lounge pants!

Your ripple blanket is only 10% finished?!

errrrrrrrr.......I was already wanting to make a skirt, and now maybe I'll just have to...but...what about that quilt project? Hard to put it on hold, but you tempt me!!!

Don't you just love the Lotta Jansdotter book? I've only made one thing from it so far but I want to try all the patterns.

I've never made a skirt before but I'm hoping to find the time to make one once my finals are over.
