What Have I Gotten Myself Into??

That's sorta what I thought - briefly!! - when I decided to partake in something challenging. Something a little outside my comfort zone. Something that I'm sure will make me say "What have I gotten myself into?!?" more than once.

BUT I'm doing it.

While checking out another blog, I discovered that there was going to be a Sew-A-Long based on a book I recently purchased called Zakka Style by Rashida Colman-Hale. They're going to work through all the projects in the book - one per week. That's right 22 weeks of sewing!!

And some crazy part of me said "Hey! This might be fun!" I like a lot of the projects - hence, the reason I bought the book in the first place - and I thought it would be a good way to build up a stash of gifts to keep handy. You know, if I don't keep them for myself! Plus, I'll probably pick up a new technique or two (or twelve) along the way. And since I'll be posting my finished projects along the way, there's some feeling of accountability (i.e. I have to finish this or else THEY will know I didn't!!!)

While still waffling about if I should do this Sew-A-Long, I learned that ...

I sew and you might give me free sh*t?!?!
I'm in.

Here's my book and my pincushion, ready to get started!

To keep up with my progress, come back. OFTEN!
I'll give you further details on my new Flickr account and everything else I'll need to Sew-A-Long! I've even added a new button to my Blog! Check it out ...
