Zakka Happy Progress

The Zakka bullet train has been speeding away from me since July and so I have declared it to be Zakka Style September in order to catch up and complete the book this month. I have 7 projects to finish and I am off to a slow-ish start.

There's a lot of other stuff going on within our house and also in the lives of other folks this week - so I have not had much time to sew at all. But I have a WiP for this week's Happy Garland Messenger Board and up for grabs is a $25 voucher to Fabric Worm. I love their selections and speedy service so I hope to be finished up in time to be in the running.

So here's my progress so far..

Summersville Charm Pack Give-Away Winner

It was so nice to read some of your favourite places in the world for this give-away. They were quite varied and had me longing to see some of them - I have always wanted to see the Isle of Skye, as the McLeod (my maiden name) forebears were from there, but I had no idea you could collect old pottery along its beaches! So thanks Lisa. And I would love to visit Nova Scotia (see my Celtic heritage shining through?) like Heather.

Anyway the winner of the charm pack is...
#28 Vera - who goes by the moniker Vexa. Congratulations. She has been a long time follower and a fellow participant in the Zakka Sew-Along.

Sadly she skipped the best town bit but I would imagine that there are some wonderfully beautiful places in her native Czech Republic. I have had a photograph of Prague on my wall since 1996 and long to go there, Mareen.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. What cute little flags for your garland. Looking forward to seeing it finished!

  2. I know what you mean about that train, hope you get time to whip right through those projects soon.

  3. I won! Thank you so much! Yes, Prague is a lovely city but it doesn't feel like favourite city to me. I might not be city lover. I enjoyed Sydney very much and many other places but wouldn't call them favourite.
    I'm so excited that I won. I made all of the Zakka projects so far but haven't won a single thing :-) I haven't start with this project yet ... gotta go, lol.

  4. I love your little flags. so cute!

  5. Such adorable little flags! I'll be looking out for the reveal on the finish =D

  6. Loving your little bunting! Hope you manage some September Sewing! :)

    Congratulations to Vexa!

  7. Wow, I haven't even started on the Zakka projects! I can't believe people are finishing already. I need to move to a cave and live alone so I can get more done, every day, LOL! Good Luck getting caught up!
