I've often joked to my more sporty friends that summer is my indoor season here in sunny and humid North Carolina. It's hard for me to get motivated to even open the front door when temperatures are in the upper 90's and 100's as they have been lately. The garden gets super weedy for a couple of months and maybe I gain a pound or two but I'd much rather sit inside in the air-conditioning and sew.
And what better to sew up when it's hot than an airy blouse to keep you cool and comfy? This week's giveaway is for your choice of one of Wiksten's two pretty downloadable blouse patterns, either their beginner level Tank pattern or their intermediate level Tova pattern (both of which include dress-length variations). These patterns are sent as downloadable zip files so you don't even have to go out to your mailbox to pick it up. We'll also throw in 3 yards of the Spoonflower fabric of your choice to make it up in. The Spoonflower cotton voile or cotton silk would be perfect for a floaty, lightweight blouse, don't you think?
If you'd like a shot at winning this week's giveaway, just leave your comment below or on the corresponding Facebook post and do include your Spoonflower screen name or other means of tracking you down easily in case you're our winner. Entries close next Tuesday, 7/17 and we'll announce a winner on Wednesday, 7/18. Good luck, everyone! This giveaway is now closed and we'll be announcing a winner on the blog shortly.
Last week's winner of the quilting notions set was Robin Hadden in Vermont — congratulations, Robin! I think you'd better hide that rotating cutting mat as soon as it arrives, though. It was coveted by quite a few commenters!
