So something pretty darned cool happened last week – a couple of my favourite twitter gals ( @notchesnnotions@StephanieKCR@HouseOFpinheiro, @BimbleandPimble, @almondrock_sews, @FreddievonFredgot together and started a twitter party which Sarah (@notchesnnotions) has dubbed #kellyskirtfriday ! The basic idea being that they would all wear their Kelly skirts on Fridays, take a quickie phone photo and post it to twitter.

I’ve gotta tell you, SO FUN! If i’ve said it once i’ve said it a million times – i get so much joy out of seeing people enjoy my designs in their daily lives – you can pretty much consider my friday made!

They’re doing it again this Friday, and i’m inviting you all to join! Just take a quick snap of your lovely self in your Kelly skirt and tweet it with the tag #kellyskirtfriday – thats it – easy right?!  No deadlines, no rules. These girls rock.

And as always, you can find me on twitter @megan_nielsen – Now i just need to decide which Kelly to wear…. decisions…

now that’s an accomplishment for you. I can only imagine what you felt when others were wearing and promoting your patterns.

Guess what? I didn’t even know about this but I (telepathically?) wore my Kelly last Friday too! I’m not on twitter but am going to join in the fun anyway – esp seeing as I finished my second Kelly over the weekend!
