It has been an exciting week!  It’s great to see all the summer sewing getting started and I can’t wait to see more in the coming months!  I’ve got several jumpsuits planned, as well as some new swimwear for my upcoming summer camping trip.  What do you like to sew in the summer time?

  1. Helen! Thank you so much for your lovely comments about our new sewing podcast, and for spreading the word. I’m so glad you enjoyed it, and Helena and I are having fun (and kinda working our butts off) getting more episodes ready to go. I love these roundups. Thanks for being an awesome blogger. 🙂
