Alder Sewalong: Schedule & Badge

Well! As of Tuesday night I'm still operating out of boxes and am still coughing like crazy so I'm going to have to start the official sew along on Monday. I hope you guys aren't too upset but I really want to make it good and only knowing where 25% of my supplies are isn't really a great start. When I did the Archer Sew Along I was able to plan ahead adn have the whole thing photographed and ready to go before the sew along started, this time I'm not so lucky. Word to the wise, don't release a new pattern, launch paper patterns, move house & studio, and go abroad all at once. It'll throw you off for a while! Today I'm posting the schedule along with a little blog badge if you find yourself interested in that for your site. On Friday I'll be doing a fusible specific post since I got a few questions about that, and then Monday we dive into Day 1 below!
