Ruthie, thank you for taking over the organisation of the challenges. I know there was a lot of time involved in coming up with the above list - it's much appreciated! I am sure there is something (or more than one challenge) for everyone willing to enter a sew-along.

Only just seen this.  Nice selection.  Wonder if I’ll get round to doing anything.  Hopefully life will start to get better in a few months and we will all feel like doing something. 

@BrendaP i can get a tee shirt out of about 75cms of fabric.  But then I’m tight!   :laughing:

It's a great list and I want to join in!  :toast:

For the UFO sewalong, can I suggest we also include mending and alterations? All of the situations involve a partly-ready garment and some degree of fitting, and don't really fit into other contests or sewalongs as they're not brand new...

Some good challenges here. Open enough for a wide interpretation but not so open that I've no idea where to start!

I hope my sew-jo returns rather quickly so I can join in this year.

Apologies for the delay in the two contests starting on 1st March.
There is a lot going on in my life right now (nothing bad) and it slipped my mind.

Just had a quick look to remind myself of the other goodies lined up for this year and I see "Foliage" for May. What have I made today on the 21st April?

 A top with a foliage print.

Do I have any more foliage print?

Course not.

Hey are the sewalongs on hiatus? I finally finished my Spring 3 piece collection so was coming to post it as inspiration on the Autumn 3 piece thread but there's nothing here!  :D

I see that September was due to be "first things" - I have the ideal entry for it as some may have already seen...

I know @SewRuthieSews has been very busy moving house, so needs a little leeway  :)

@cakeymcdoodle I've had a double house move in July/August/September, and only got internet access at the new house today.
OH and I are merging the contents of my old house and his apartment into a bungalow and as you can imagine there is flat pack and boxes everywhere.

There has been no sewing at all, and though I will have a sewing room here its just a pile of boxes at the moment.
@Iminei and @Bodgeitandscarper  thanks for the leeway!

I have offered to host a couple of sewalongs as we have a hiatus at the moment - 8 months since I moved house I'm now seeing the Forest of Dean wood and not just the trees whereas @SewRuthieSews is in the middle of several house moves!

As far as I can tell, the July sewalong - Awesome Accessories - got extended into August but I can't see that it ended there.
September was due to be 'First Things First' and October 'Scrapbusting' with 'Autumn 3 piece Clothing Collection' running alongside in Sept and Oct.

My inclination is to try and finish off Awesome Accessories soonish and leapfrog to 'Scrapbusting' for October. If anyone is in the midst of a 3-piece collection, I'm sure we'd like to view those too when they are completed with a special parade of loveliness.

Comment welcome - if I get too confused I'll just thcweam and thcweam until I'm thick  :boohoo: (Apols. to those who know nought of Richmal Crompton and 'Just William')
