Refashion Runway

Monday again.  It’s the last week of school for my kids and I just booked our first camping trip for the summer.  We’re going to move my daughter back home on Friday, where she’ll be staying and attending college locally next year while we prepare for the wedding.  It’s already shaping up to be a pretty good week.

I wanted to share an event with you that’s going on over at The Renegade Seamstress.  If you’ve never visited before, she is a refashion queen.  Beth can take just about any piece of clothing and turn it into something better.  She also holds a special place in my heart as a fellow Oregonian and recent mother of the bride.  Starting last week, she’s also the hostess of Refashion Runway.

Beth has gathered eight talented refashion artists to compete in weekly challenges.  This week’s topic is stripes, and the ladies did not disappoint.  I’ve already voted, but I don’t want to influence anyone by sharing my favorite here.  I’d encourage you to go check them out and vote yourself.  Good luck – it’s a tough decision.

In other news, I was recently chosen to receive a packet of fat quarters from Clothworks Textiles as part of the Tutorial Exchange Program at Totally Tutorials.  This lovely little bundle arrived on my doorstep last week.

Now my job is to make something pretty from them and share it with all of you.  The wheels are turning, but suggestions are welcome!
