The Sew OFF

So, the results for week 2 of The Sew Off are here. I didn't make it to the 3rd week if you're wondering. It was no surprise at all, I can tell you. If only the votes of the judges counted, I would be in the 6 contestants left, but those were not the rules of this contest and I'm off now.
That's quite a relief though. My kid is getting sick and I'm feeling just too tired this week to come up with something worth the competition... those ladies are really good!!!
So, it's going to be just nice to follow the competition... I've taken it very sprotly since the start. I'm not too extra competitive so, losing doesn't hurt... It's a case of, it was fun while it lasted! And I do feel like a winner, anyway!
You don't believe me?! Well, let me tell you. First of all, did you see The Sew off prizes? Pretty much fabric and patterns... Ok, I feel a little sad about the patterns, but really?! Fabric? I've been trying to use what I already have because I feel like there's just too much hanging around here. YES, it'd feel good to win it, I won't lie, but it's not the end of the world.
I feel like a winner, because out of all the people that auditioned, I made it to the top 12. And after that I made it to the top 9... so, I didn't make it to the top 6... but, did you realise just how many SO-TALENTED! people I left behind?! There's no way for me NOT to feel like a winner.
I feel like a winner, because I followed my goal of not buying any fabrics, I used my already existing supplies, I pushed my criativity, I renewed a corner from my house that was long waiting for me to. And I had fun creating... doing what I love most, which is sewing. Now, was I clear, enough?
If there's only one thing I feel bad about, is that it got me so tired that I did not stand up for all the sew-alongs I was planning too, and some of my ideas to be done this month were put aside... I am still trying to catch up with a couple of them.
Now, stay around and soon there'll be more to see.

  1. Congratulations for making it to the second round of the Sew-Off. I found you and your blog during the "get to know the contestants," and I'm so happy I did! Much love and continued luck from Texas :) I do hope your daughter feels better soon as well!

  2. I'm glad you'll have time to relax, but I have to admit that your project was my favorite. I've been sewing along with both The Sew Off and Sew-vivor and I almost quit both because it got to be too much. You've got some great stuff!

    1. Oh Jordan, thanks so much for your words. I didn't believe my own project. But I was quite hopeless about passing to the next round so I didn't bother to do better anyway. I think I won't be able to follow PR&P this week =( and I already made an entry that fitted both PR&P and Sew-vivor.

  3. How many people auditioned? Top 9 out of well over 100 is not bad at all!
