Back in Timor-and so excited

We made it back to Timor! I must admit after getting up to go to the airport at 3 AM I kinda went into hibernation ha! Thank heavens I have a husband who can totally function on little to no sleep. I had to get sleep though because the month of May holds A LOT of fun posts. Not surprisingly they will mostly be  based on my "Evie's wardrobe" theme except for the first, which will be on the cute blog "Be Sweet"

I will be sharing a maternity dress that I made to go a long with her week long theme of projects for Moms. It is super easy and pretty cute :) Next up I will be oh so nervously posting over at my all time favorite sewing blog Grosgrain!
Kathleen is debuting her whole new blog and I am THRILLED to be part of an AMAZING line up. Each contributor will also provide a free pattern! How fantastic is that! This is exactly the reason I started sharing blogging was to get more free digital patterns out there. Now there will be an entire month of free patterns from some amazingly talented women. You won't want to miss it!

Then I will be heading over to Me Sew Crazy to take part in a Sewing Remix. I was so excited when Jessica emailed me. I think of her as a kindred spirit of sorts since we are both sewing fiends who are dealing with the fun of being preggy too! Although she is ALOT closer to the finish line then I am :) Each participant will come up with a twist on a pattern they love and share it! I have to admit it was kind of nice to sew with a pattern again ha!
I am soooo excited for this! The ladies behind KoJo Designs are so wonderful. I love getting emails from them, checking out their fabulous creations and I LOVE how many fabulous guest bloggers they have. Hasn't The Sincerest Form of Flattery been fun to follow? I was pretty inspired and am totally psyched to take part in their next line up! I am going to be doing the color RED!! 
There are one or two others that might be in the mix, but like I said a busy month! But that's the way I like it, I work better under pressure ha! I also have plenty of my own posts to share and lots of Spring patterns from Evies closet to get published. 
I also thought it would be fun to share some of the fantastic outcomes from readers creating projects from Sewing in No Mans Land:
Meagan sent me a picture of the gorgeous headband she made for her adorable daughter:

(Seriously how lovely is that picture! Such a beautiful little lady!)
Terra over at Mama Says Sew made a super cute springy version of the Couture Cutie or "mullet" dress:
Sarah got together with some friends and they knocked out a bunch of the easy now sew tutu's! 
Laura from Day Of Grace made her own Razzelberry Apron:

I hope I didn't miss anyone! I LOVE seeing creations you make so if you happen to snap a pic and don't mind taking the time to send it to me you would totally make my day! I hope you all had a very lovely Easter and spent lots of time with your family. I spent most of mine in awe at how overwhelmingly blessed I am, and I pray you had that same wonderful feeling!


  1. how fun, lots of fun in may...are you still going to put up the pattern for the button up shorts :)

  2. Reading what you have coming up in may has me excited! Better go get finished up on all the projects I am in the middle of right now!
