Riding on Bikes with Skirts – A Summer of No Pants Guest Post

Summer of No Pants

I’m so excited to be posting today as part of the Summer of No Pants! I had a great time going pants-less last summer, and I was very excited when Marigold invited me to join as a guest blogger this time around. I thought the best post for me would be to use my time to evangelize to everyone about riding on bikes with skirts!

Riding on Bikes with Skirts - A Summer of No Pants Guest Post

Yes, bikes and skirts! You can look nice and still be active! Summer weather is the perfect time to eschew vehicular modes of transportation and travel in the open air! I actually do not own a car, and I reside in the self-proclaimed bike capital of the country, so I bike all year long. I suppose that’s not as comfortable for people who live where it snows. But no excuses now! The sun is shining! Get that cruiser out, pump up the tires, and go for a ride!

CraftingCon Guest Post for Harry Potter Month!

Today I’m excited to be guest posting over at Friends Stitched Together! Amy and Tasha have united with Maegen and Karen of  Mae & K for a cool new series called CraftingCon, celebrating all the things we love to love! And my family LOVES Harry Potter, which just happens to be the subject of the inaugural month!

Crafting Con
CraftingCon is part sewing competition, part inspirational posts and tutorials for incorporating a little bit of fandom in our every day lives. I’m posting a fun outfit I made my son to read the last chapter of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. He was so excited!

Hi and welcome! I’m Darcie, aka Mimi’s Mom. You can read more about me here. I’m so excited to get to join the Lorelei Dress Blog Tour today! I met Elizabeth of E-beth Designs through a few Facebook groups, and I was thrilled to get to get to be part of the blog tour for her first women’s design. I was provided with a copy of the pattern to participate, but all opinions and stitches are my own! Lorelei Dress Blog Tour

Home Sewing Angie Dress

Here it is, my second and final Selfish Sewing Week Project! Nothing like the last minute for me, I finished my Home Sewing Angie Dress Saturday night right around midnight. I hadn’t made a Sis Boom Angie dress yet, and this seemed like the perfect fabric for it. And now that I have a dress done, I feel like I did actually do something last week. One tee shirt isn’t as impressive as a dress, even though the shirt actually took more time and whatnot to sit down and watch the lessons and draft the pattern… Anyway, a sense of accomplishment for both.
