KCW – In Review

KCW ended on Sunday. So, how did I do? The challenge is to sew (and do sewing related tasks like iron and cut fabric) for children for an hour a day for the seven days.

Did I sew for my girls?

Yes. I made Elle and Danica each a dress. River is slightly annoyed that she didn’t get something.

Did I sew or doing sewing related tasks for my girls everyday for an hour a day?


Did I put in more than seven hours total that week?

Heck yes.

Am I going to count it as a win?


I did put in a lot of hours that week and they weren’t hours I could have really shuffled around and spread out throughout the week, not with the deadlines for pattern tests and with life being what it is (errands, and kids, and all that jazz). So, yes, I put in the hours. No, I didn’t technically follow the challenge.

Better luck next season.

Next week, when the pattern releases, I’ll share more photos of the Matinée Dress I made for Elle.


About manningthemachine

I'm Laura. Mama to four, and wife to one awesome guy. I'm ever so slightly sarcastic. Just a little bit. I like to quote movies, but since our house is managed by little people, most of those quotes come from kiddie shows. At least my husband generally gets the references. It makes me feel less awkward. I took sewing lessons starting at the age of 8, through the Kids Can Sew program. I took lessons for four or five years. Then I became a snotty teen and decided sewing was lame. I've repented of my ways, and enjoy sewing for my little ones. And sometimes other people. And almost never for myself. Oh hey. My blog name. "Manning The Machine." I think it's probably only funny if you know me in real life. And even then, maybe it is only funny to me. My last name is Manning. This is a blog about my sewing. Manning The (Sewing) Machine. Do you get it? Do you? No. That's fine. I think it's funny even if you don't.
