Hi everyone! I'm participating in the Junior Achievement Bowl-a-thon through my job. Our team has been really busy fundraising and we decided to hold a "silent auction" this week. Now, I'm really not good a fundraising at all...to be honest, I really don't like doing it either! However, when your office director puts you on the team and thinks you will do a good job...well you don't want to disappoint them! So I worked "feverishly" calling some favors from my hotel contacts (I coordinate meetings) and ended up getting two major hotels (Hyatt and Intercontinental) to donate 2 night stays at their hotel for our auction! It was so worth the stress!
I will be bowling for the team but also had this thought...I would donate my sewing skills and time for our auction too! I decided to make a twin set (cardigan and tank) for the auction. The team liked my idea but was a little concerned about timing. They didn't want to put any extra stress on me in trying to get something created. Of course, sewing is my passion so you all know me, I'll make it happen for a great cause!
So I decided to use a TNT pattern that was very quick and stylish...Simplicity 2603 (the DKNY knockoff).
On the vacation sewing front, I have a few more pieces completed...I'm almost done and really have to get moving since I only have about 4 weeks remaining to sew! I'll post those pieces in a couple of days. Wish me luck and thank you so much for stopping by!
