Blog sick leave until Monday

Morning, readers. As you are waiting for the next installment of the straight skirt draft-along, I have to take couple of days off. I got a vicious flu by the tail, so I have to prioritize a little. I will compensate for the Draft-Along post next week, posting two installments, the first one will be pretty easy and short, no worries. This will also give you some time to pose in front of the mirror with your new hip measurement tool and take pictures.

As I got some time for browsing while sick, I was wondering whether anyone is interested in discussing the skirt draft-along on a more interactive platform. I find Flickr is not a good solution for discussions. Maybe Ning. If you have suggestions, let me know. Obviously I'd prefer a free solution, but can also look at low-budget options.

As for me, I will try to work on my lace skirt - no escape. And, probably, the only nice part of being sick, work on the third sampler for my Craftsy hand embroidery class, on my cosy sofa, although interrupted by two recovering girls who keep on demanding My Little Pony coloring printouts.

I am off to check ProjectSewn. Participating bloggers are all so awesome, that I have difficulties deciding who to vote for. Will occasionally log on to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter - need some interaction for keeping up my sewjo.

    I just signed up for a Wordpress blog to provide blog critiques between some fellow bloggers and we're using the P2 theme. It allows discussion within a thread similar to a forum, but without the forum setup. Not sure about photos though. I would think they can be inserted, but it's still new to me and I haven't tried it yet.

    There are only four of us as well. We all have administrative privileges which makes access easy. Your volume will be much larger. Haven't looked at 'rights' levels on this theme.

    Good luck finding a platform. This is an area of sewing I'm very interested in.

  3. Feel better soon! Shannon D.

  4. I hope you will recover soon!

    As you are looking for an interactive platform, I would suggest mysewingcircle.com. It's free and it looks a little bit like ravelry.com. You could have your own sewingcircle there.
