Hello friends. I’ve just come back from a restorative, romantic weekend in a rustic little cabin (followed by an evening at a great local spa where I hopped between steam room, sauna, hot tub and icy cold pond in my Bombshell bikini!) I’m feeling so lucky to be alive in the here and now, so grateful to be a part of this evolving, brilliant, industrious, and caring community.

In keeping with the spirit of Sew Grateful Week, I would love to give away a copy of the Bombshell Swimsuit pattern, so that you too can sauna, hot tub or steam room it up. Please leave a comment below and I will randomly choose a winner on Monday, March 3rd.

Good luck!
