Introducing The Seven in Seven Challenge
You know what they say about sharks? That unless they keep swimming, they die? Well, I'm a shark. If I don't have something overly-ambitious to keep myself busy, I start going a bit crazy.
Well, here's my latest don't-go-crazy project: The Seven in Seven Challenge.
Why are you doing this?
See above shark metaphor. Also, I want to see if I actually can do it. I may not be able to.
How do we know you didn't have these dresses already made?
To show that I'm not cheating at the challenge, I thought about showing a daily newspaper alongside the raw materials for each dress. But then I figured, you guys are a trusting lot. So instead of going the daily newspaper route, I'm going to let the readers decide which fabrics I should use for each dress. That way, until the poll results are in, I won't be able to start. That said, I'll probably run multiple polls at a time so that I can get a headstart.
When will you start each dress?
Once I get fifty votes for one particular fabric, I'll start. So make this easy on me and vote early! Also, help spread the word about this challenge since I can always use the pressure motivation!
Are others invited to participate?
If this works out (and doesn't kill me), I'll invite others to play along. If you're interested in doing it in the future, let me know.
Where did the patterns come from?
Colette Patterns generously donated each of the dress patterns that I will be sewing. Thanks Sarai and the CP gang!
When does this project start?
Tomorrow, May 11th 2011.
