Sew-vivor: Top 8 Contestants Announced

Today we announce the Top 8 for Sew-vivor.
It is harder than I thought to say goodbye to 2 girls with so much talent.
Before we get to the results, remember that we have a guest judge each week, who will pick her favorite project to earn "immunity" from being "kicked off the island."

We have Mandi from Sugar Bee Crafts as our Immunity Guest Judge today. Please allow me to give her a big welcome by introducing her!
................................................................................................................
Hi Everyone!! I am SUPER excited/ SUPER intimidated about judging in this season!!  Because these gals can SEW.
I am Mandy, and I blog over at www.SugarBeeCrafts.com :
I live in the midwest and have 4 amazing kids (9,7,5,3) and a great husband who is willing to help on whatever crazy project I need.  I have my degree in sociology, but I love being able to stay home with my kids and crafting and creating.
I started my craft blog when I kept showing off my projects on my family blog and thought they were taking over and needed a space of their own.  I couldn't have imagined that it would grow to what it is today - wow!  I enjoy showing projects and tutorials and I feel like if I can do something, then really, you can too!  I want to encourage everyone to give it a try!

I have been sewing forever, even as a child making pj pants, etc.  But I wouldn't consider myself a seamstress by any means.  I still have to call my mom and aunt when I can't figure out what some patterns are talking about.  I like sticking to easy projects that I know I can tackle.

Mandy chose Contestant #10 to earn immunity for this week. Lucky for her, she would have made it through to the next round regardless of the immunity, but who knows, maybe in a future round, the immunity will save someone from leaving the competition!

Now.... I present the Top 8!
CONTESTANT #1: Miranda from One Little Minute

CONTESTANT #2: Jen from I Can't Stop Crafting


CONTESTANT #3: Kailee from An Outfit a Day



CONTESTANT #5: Kirstin from Kojo Designs


CONTESTANT #7: Nancy from Nancy's Couture

CONTESTANT #8: Renee from Hill Yeah


CONTESTANT #9: Jessica from Swenson Love


CONTESTANT #10: Shannon from Googiemomma


With heavy hearts, we say goodbye to:
CONTESTANT #4: Amanda from Simply Homemade

CONTESTANT #6: Kelli

For those interested, here are the results...
