I will just get my sins out of the way first–I’m a terrible blogger. I have terrible follow-through on half the things I blog about and forget to document my progress on the other half. I will try to be better.

Ok. I signed up to participate in the Easiest Sew Along Ever, hosted by Windsor and Main (a very cute quilting and crafting blog). The reason that this is the easiest sew along ever is…you sew what you want with what you have available. The “along” part is documenting your progress and checking in on a weekly basis. I’ve been wanting to jump start my crafting after the long hiatus of new job, big house reno, basic apathy. In an effort to not jump off the deep end with more or bigger projects* than I can handle, I’ve been so, so good and only committed to the goal of finishing up a birthday present for a friend. Which is of course overdue, but not yet of the epic proportions for which I am known. These are the basic sew along requirements:
- Start Where You’re At
- Use What You Have
- Do What You Can
Each week there are assignments. The first one was to join the flickr group and post pictures of either your inspiration or the fabric you plan to use. Which I did. By the deadline even. I’m on fire. They’re not great photos, but in the spirit of getting it done rather than getting it all done perfectly, here are the fabrics I’ve pulled:
