Blogtoberfest (31) - The End! And My Centurian Post

I MADE IT!  Both to the end of Blogtoberfest and also to 100 posts!

100 posts really snuck up on me and it wasn't until a few days ago that I realised post 100 would fall on the last day of Blogtoberfest, which was pretty cool.


Blogtoberfest (with a little KCWC thrown in for good measure) was a pretty marathon effort and I really enjoyed doing it.  I got so much done!

I made some things from scratch:

  • Frothy sewalong with Amanda from Elliboo (Emmaline dress from Violet Fields Threads)
  • Pyjamas for James 
  • Birthday dress for Gemma
  • 20 minute skirt for Issy 
  • A pair of shorts each for Noah and Marcus (not yet blogged)
  • A washi dress for me, which didn't fit :(  more on that later when I redo the bodice!

I finished off the following:

  • Kinder Girls doll (I think that was finished in October)
  • Three pairs of pants
  • Disco Bot (not yet blogged)

AND I started but have not yet finished:

  • A new sewalong (Go To Signature dress) with Amanda - I have cut out so far
  • A hat for Issy 
  • A pair of knitted socks (purl bee pattern)

AND I hosted my first ever giveaway (which was posted today!).  AND I went away on a mini-holiday, complete with sunset :)

Pretty pleased with all that and also now very motivated in the sewing world, having seen how much gets done when I have a driving force.  Special thanks to Amanda for encouraging me into KCWC and for suggesting our first sewalong of many :)

I might not see you tomorrow (just for a change) but soon!  Off to make my finish by Christmas list :)
