2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

October 14, 2012

WHAT'S A CARNIVAL WITHOUT LOTS OF VARIETY....

...
  1. ...because several people have asked me about a "SKIRT SEW-A-LONG" as related to the Skirt Carnival; and
  2. ...because I am embarrassed that I did not think of making it a sew-a-long from the very start; and
  3. ...because I just can't seem to shut this skirt thing off anyway, and
  4. ...the more the merrier!  Variety would make it a more interesting parade.  Don't you think???
PLEASE ACCEPT MY INVITATION TO THE GREAT
