Thank you everyone for your lovely birthday wishes – I was chuffed to bits to receive them, & for so many of you to enter my birthday giveaway. Thank you , thank you & thank you. I’d love for you all to have something, but my hands are tied & I don’t think my bank balance would appreciate the mass postage.
So, in a very manual low tech hat-job draw, here are the winners ….
For lot 1, the ric rac to promote world zigzagination …
The winner is Shivani, who blogs at Pins and Needles & has made me rethink casual shirts with her Wiksten Tova shirt in fabric dotted with elephants no less (I LOVE elephants too!). I can’t wait to see what you do with the ric rac Shivani …..you will inspire me I’m sure!
Next up, New Look 6000.
Lene is the winner of the infamous New Look 6000, saying,
“If you are willing to mail all the way to Australia, I would love the New Look 6000 pattern. I have been admiring your beautiful creation along with all the others in your round-up.”
Sure am Lene! I will be popping this in the post this week to you. Once you’ve made it, feel free to send me some pics & I can add to the gallery…
And last but not least, for the jewellery book,
the winner is none other than Dibs (who blogs at Miss Dibs) Maybe you’ll find some little projects that you can fit in every now & then, or make some soft fabric jewellery that you can wear around the little one ?? I must say I smiled when I drew your name out of the hat as I get the impression from your blog that you are not just a sewing fan, but am nuts for all sorts of crafts- so I hope you find something that takes your fancy in this book. It was always that flower necklace that drew me… & the crocheted cherries!
Thanks again everyone. I’ve emailed the winners, but should the emails go astray please get in touch.
As an update on my sewing ….After that crazy mad 6 weeks at work I lapsed into crazy mad sewing as soon I was able & I think I have made 4 things in the last fortnight with a fifth in suspension awaiting some decisions. More of a slow burner that one. But I spent all afternoon & some of the evening making a Lisette Portfolio tunic …& am wearing it now! (No photos as yet)
And the knitting? Wisdom has a completed back & half a left front with a lime green pocket lining. Woo hoo! Onto it now in front of the TV. [Breathes out & searches for the remote]
