Sewing Photo Challenge

Instagram Photo Challenge

I've become a bit addicted to sewing challenges.  So I joined in on a November Sewing Photo Challenge. It was hosted by blogger Amanda of Bimble and Pimble and titled #SEWVEMBER.

It was different from other challenges that I've done. No sewing was required! The challenge was to simply post photos on Instagram that best identified various themes.

Well, it really wasn't that simple!  It was thought provoking!  I had to put some serious thought into each day's theme.  As you can see, I didn't post photos each day, partly due to travel, other times due to not having enough time in each day aka life.

And...I'm still thinking about the theme #30 - 2018.  I know that my theme for 2018 is "Goals" -  but I don't have a photo to properly represent those goals! Not yet, anyway! LOL!

I hope you enjoy walking through this photo challenge with me!  It was sew much fun to post photos, but even more fun to see what other sewists, designers and bloggers posted!

 # 6 Bargain - This self-drafted top was made from a beautiful stable knit that was a gift!

 # 9 Refreshments - My sewing refreshment is water.
 I love this cup that my friend, Lisa bought and personalized for me!

 #10 Everyday - These girls are running almost every day!

 #11 Sewing Buddies - These are my sewing buddies/friends/sisters, Lisa, Rhonda, Reen, Molly and Sandy! Although we live in 4 different states, we are great friends! We have sew much fun when we are together.  I love them like sisters!

 #12 When I'm Not Sewing - I'm reading!

#13 Shortcut - I don't really like to take shortcuts, but I often put my serger to work to help with narrow hems. After serging, I use that "line" to fold over and press a narrow hem...once or twice.  then I can easily stitch it.

 #14 Tricky - It's "tricky" to use my cutting table for 2 sewing projects and 1 embroidery project at once!  LOL!

#15 Mix It Up - Mixed-up aka Pattern Hack aka Scrappy Tops.
I hacked my own pattern by slashing the front.  Sew fun! 😄

 #16 Stash Pride - Zippers!

#18 Color Palette - I love jewel tones - I wear them all year round!

 #19 Motto - What's that you have in your hand? I can use what I have! The top pic is a finished jacket. The bottom pic is from my stash - it will be a dress.  They will be beautiful together!

 #20 Luxury - Some of my silk stash gifted to me by friends! I love my friends - they get me!!

#22 Soundtrack  - Just a few of the sounds I listen to while I'm sewing. Music IN my happy place!

#23 What Was I Thinking?  I wasn't!  I was rushing! I sewed one of the sleeves to the side of the jacket. But all was not lost.  I posted my blooper on Sew News' Facebook page and won a prize package!  LOL!

#24 Texture - My daughter loves texture and being comfy.
 So I made this quilt for her with 3D flowers. And yes! She uses it!

#25 Finishing Touches - Sometimes a Hong Kong finish is the only way to go.

 #26 From Where I Sew - The view from my sewing studio. The trees are full and glorious in the summer.  The sun glowing here reminds me of this Scripture:
For you shall go out with joy, and be led out with peace; the mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing before you, and the hills shall break forth into singing before you.  And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.  ~ Isaiah 55:12 NKJV ~

  #29 No Limits
Growth - No Limits - No More Limits!
Website is up and running!
