I’m going to a friend’s cottage for a few nights, and I don’t have a post scheduled at all for this week! **EEEEEK! Cue strange panic attack! No, honestly, why does a lack of posts make my heart race unpleasantly?** I have posts ready I could stick up, but I don’t like content for content’s sake, so I’m going to breathe deeply and leave you alone for a week!
First, a few things I’ve been wanting to talk about on the blogosphere:
- Have you seen Erica’s Kickstarter to get MyBodyModel created? I think it’s a fantastic idea, and I know Erica has worked hard behind the scenes to make it a useful tool for sewists of all sizes!
- Tribute Month has officially begun! When I start projects like the Sewcialists, I always wonder if anyone will join in, or if I’ll just be having a theme month of one! I’m so relieved and grateful that people are choosing to join in with the Sewcialists and Tribute Month. We’ve had 8 finished projects pop up on Instagram already, and more WIP on the way – plus Meris and Melizza have really fantastic finsihed projects coming up on the blog this week! I’m grateful to having sewing friends who jump on board when I asked!
- On a less-awesome note, Jess from the Sometimes Sewist wrote an important post recently about how Girl Charlee stole pictures of her (and her little boy!) and used them for promotion without permission… and when she told them to stop, they basically said, “Our customers are usually grateful for the publicity!” Absolutely unacceptable. I’ve never liked the quality at Girl Charlee, but even if I did, I wouldn’t shop there again.
Now I’d better go finish packing – have a wonderful week, my friends!
