Periscope - Another Social Media App?!

What is Periscope you say?

Periscope is an app on my phone that allows me to watch live broadcasts of folks talking about a bunch of stuff.  We'll, I'm a part of a crafters' group on Facebook affectionately known as the PeriCrafters! These people are AMAZING and they "Scope" about crafts, sewing, jewelry and pattern making (just to name a few things)! I'm so loving the scopes! It's better than TV!! It's been around for a while but hey, it's new to me! (so there!)

After watching a few scopes, I just had to join in on the fun! I have a two part series about "Sewing for Men" on my profile.  Check it out if you have some time.  If you are not interested in sewing, you may get lost or board so, when I scope about something else you can watch that! HA! My handle is "Anncie2001" and you can follow me. 10-4 good buddy! (Yea, that was corny wasn't it)

I got some great feedback from the attendees so I plan on doing definitely two more scopes. Not necessarily about sewing for men but definitely "sewing" based! So download the app and tune in!! I still have a few things to learn about the app, but I getting there. (Rome wasn't built in a day)

Check my blog post to get the docs that I promised on my Part 2 series.  It took me the rest of the evening to learn how to get these papers up and in download form! Whew!  My tech brain is pooped!

Anyhooooo. . . I hope you been watching my Me Made May series on Instagram.  If not check it out here on my blog! (to the right and up - say's Instagram'n) and follow me there too! (Never anytime for laundry - I just make something new!)

Until next time!

Update Docs For the Camp Shirt Challenge!!
Here are the documents I promised you!!
Shoot me an Email if something goes wrong!

WTW!!! A Blog Post?

Where have I been? Reading everyone else's Blogs and living life!

WTW!  I have come out of BLOG retirement for errrrr uuuuum uuuuuh I dunno, We'll see!  Anyhooooo,  I entered a contest on Pattern Review!  The last contest I entered was back in 2009 and I won a prize!  It was a knit challenge and I made a dress.  Well this contest I'm in is a mini wardrobe A match B match C ext.  I made myself a little wardrobe for work because the Fabu Terri of Virginia's Sew Blessed Daughter put us all to shame and made a smokin 80,000 piece wardrobe and won the PR Contest to boot (OK, maybe not 80,000 pieces, but close) and because I needed some business casual clothes.

So, I stopped my current project to check to see if the pattern was reviewed on PR and I saw the Contest Link.  I usually check it out and cast my vote.  Low and behold there was a contest I was actually eligible for and was done sewing! After the loooong entry process (no it's spelled correctly), it felt crazy to not add the "blog" link.  I'm not going back to add it so errrr uuuuh anyway. Yeah.  I made 5 pieces and I'm adding Pics! Work has slowed down a tad so I'm binge sewing and blogging (today). I even cooked dinner and did "some" laundry.
(I loathe laundry). Did I mention I forgot to check that pattern review? (yeah.)

This is my entry photo!

Just the shirt.  It's so soft!

Thanks in advance for the complements and comments! (ROFLMAO!) And for those of you who know me, the answer is still No.  Now that I have time on my hands, I still won't sew for you!  Enjoy Errrrrbody!! Prom sewing is almost over so to my "Sew Sista'z" you can relax, relate, release.  Me however, I don't sew for nobody no more so I'm already chillax'n!  If you belong to Pattern Review's website - vote for me.  Voting starts May 16th.  (is that tacky?)

I went back and added the blog link. (stop laughing)
