Thank you all so much for your enthusiastic reaction to the Sporty Summer Sewathon. It’s put a rocket up my behind and no mistake. This week I cycled 36 miles and walked 28 miles! I think that’s called an improvement.
I’ve even ordered a pattern for cycling culottes and am waiting impatiently for the below to arrive from Canada:

Now, the prizes! Four very special people have agreed to supply some awesome prizes for whoever I choose as the most impressive participant in the Sporty Summer Sewathon. Impressive could mean anything – I am notoriously subject to whim – so don’t over think this. Just have fun! The prizes are:
- Your choice of a sportswear pattern from Melissa of Fehr Trade. Have you heard about Melissa’s own Spring Race Challenge? If you’re looking for race motivation and want to share a hard-won medal, this is definitely the competition for you! Melissa and I even share the same deadline of 6 July. So you could make this a double whammie, entering two competitions at the same time. Huzzah!
- A £25 gift voucher from The Village Haberdashery. I am a big fan of this shop and Annie stocks the most gorgeous fabrics.
- A copy of The Colette Guide to Sewing Knits (print or ebook, the winner’s choice). Written to help us embrace the beautiful and the comfortable, this book would be perfect for activewear inspiration!
- There will also be a second prize, which will be a hamper of goodies from Minerva Crafts.
So, does that sound like enough inspiration? Heart beating faster? Tell me what you’re planning!
