Goodness gracious; its been a while. What reason could there possibly be for not writing one's blog for so long? If you could think up a suitable excuse, I would be very much obliged.
If you leave a suggestion here, I will also pop you in the running to win a copy of the "2011 Sewing Calendar" released by Accord Publishing. Entries are open until 9am Thursday 30 December (Australian Eastern Standard time) and anyone is welcome to enter. A winner will be drawn at random and - being as 2011 is almost upon us - the calendar sent post haste.
(Remember: Outlandish is good. Mirth is encouraged.)
In the meantime, here is a little more about this lovely calendar.
2011 Sewing Calendar
Page-a-Day Calendar, 430 pages
Megan Smith (editor)
The year-round sewing enthusiast will love this calendar. There are over 100 terrific projects for everyday home use, as well as lovely gifts for giving. If you enjoy reading sewing blogs, you will recognise many of the contributors, including these talented ladies. There's a new project every three days, presented as a handy fold-out page. Step-by-step instructions are accompanied by illustrations and pattern pieces.
Thank you to Megan Smith, for including a project from me too. Coincidentally it falls exactly one year from today - 26 December. Maybe I'll see you this time next year for a spot of sewing?
