Sorry to cancel May's sewing challenge

I hate to do it, but I just can't see me finding the time to organize May's sewing challenge.  The morning's I used to spend blogging are now spent at my new job.  I work in the library of an alternative high school and LOVE it.  I have the summer off though, so expect the challenges to resume once school's out.

I'm trying to come up with something new to do over the summer break.  So stay tuned and take care!

The poll for the Fancy Feet Challenge is still open and the results will be posted in May.  Super-congrats to all the participants!

Vote: Fancy Feet Sewing Challenge

March's challenge asked the participants to learn how to use a new foot on their sewing machines.  I tried to master my rolled hem foot without very much success.  You can read about my own foot misadventures HERE.

A total of 10 participants were able to meet the challenge by creating finished projects using their new and/or fancy feet.  It's not always easy to meet a challenge and fulfill a commitment, but 10 of you did and I think that's just so incredibly awesome!!!  Thanks so much for all of your hard work and dedication.  All of the challenge entries are so creative and inspiring.  Please scroll down and follow the links to all the projects.

After the list of projects is a just-for-fun poll to vote for your top 3 entries.  Anyone can vote once per day throughout April.  The entries receiving the most votes are awarded with bragging rights and nifty badges for their blogs.
