Pageantry in Progress

Productivity has been down this week in Seersucker Sally Land. I've been very distracted by bleak Norwegian dramas and synchronized swimming. Such feats of agony and strangeness, it's hard not to get sucked in! Anyway, here's a glimpse of the front flap of a messenger bag I've been working on when I haven't been watching the pageantry of the human spirit unfold on the screen:

Pattern Pyramid Giveaway- Round 3

As promised, I am hosting my first ever giveaway, courtesy of Karen's at Did you make that?  As part of her great Pattern Pyramid Giveaway, Karen sent several lucky participants bundles of patterns, of which they each kept one and hosted giveaways of their own to pass on the remaining patterns. As the winner of Sew Brunswick's leg of the giveaway, it's now my turn to pass on the sewing love.

Here is Sew Brunswick's beautifully wrapped parcel of patterns, having traveled from London, England to Melbourne, Australia to Philadelphia, U.S.A. Where to next?

Here are the patterns:

On deciding which one to keep, it was a toss up between the New Look 6674 and the "Economy Design" blouse. I decided to go with the New Look 6674. I've been wanting to find a work dress that could double as a post-yoga cover up (is that too much to ask?). I think the New Look 6674 just might fit the bill. Thanks, Karen and Leith!

So, here are the Rules: 
  • Anyone, anywhere can enter by leaving a comment on this post by midnight EST on Tuesday, August 7th, but you must have an active blog.
  • I will randomly select one winner, and post them the collection of 4 patterns along with hand woven labels to be sewn into anything made from one of these patterns.
  • The winner will pick one pattern to keep for themselves, then host their own giveaway. They will randomly select a winner, post the remaining patterns to that Person D. Person D will pick a pattern for themselves, host their own giveaway and post the remaining patterns to the winner, Person E. Person E will…
For more information, including code for the Pattern Pyramid button and details of the charity supported by the very generous donor of the patterns, please see Karen's post at Did you make that?

Best of luck!
