Waiting for round 3 results sewing - Ottobre 4/2017 designs 13 & 29
I picked design 13 - blue bird denim dress for Eva - and design 29 - compas raglan t-shirt - for Andrei:
I had no plan on actually finishing any of the items but I did finished both that night and no results posted yet.
The list came out just as I hit a final refresh before shutting down the light to put the kids to sleep. I was really happy to see GeoP winning the round. It was great jacket and I am a fan of her work for a long time but then the rest of the list was there and my name was not on it nor were a few other of my favorite entries. I thought that I probably missed some important aspects for the round and went on singing songs to the kids and telling stories. It was had to fight back some tears gathering in the back of my eyes. But it was dark and hard to cry while you try to come up with new rimes to kids happy songs... By the time they were finally asleep I was somehow OK with being out and I was already picturing a wool coat I really want to make...As I was opening my laptop my husband asked me if I know anything about the contest results. I lied and said they didn't post them yet - I was not ready to tell him I failed... I entered to congratulate Geo and after I posted my comment I glance at the list and see AlpineQueen name there... I was quite sure she was not on the list... but I only read it quickly so maybe I missed it... still I read the list again... and again... and a again... my name was on the list. A lot of names were changed for sure... It seams that the initial post was a fingers slip and the second list was the good one. I still try to wrap my head about being in the final... I have no idea what I will make and I am sure at least some of the contestants are already cutting patterns and fabric... I am really busy at work the first few days so hopefully by the time I can sew I will have a plan as well...
And now pictures with kids new outfits on Sunday right before the last challenge was announced ( outfit for a class reunion ... ):
