Thank you to everyone who entered my first giveaway. It was fascinating to go through everyone’s comments on what RTW garment they wished they could clone. It seems shirt dresses and beloved winter coats are high on everyone’s wish list. Yep, I can totally relate to both of those.
Anyway, the random number generator picked: Debra Lee as the winner of the giveaway! Congratulations. You will be receiving the sewing tools and the pattern. I have your email address; I will be in touch to get your postal address. Debra said she would love to find a simple shift dress pattern. Well, now you can have a go at a shirt dress as well!
In other news, we have just accepted an offer on our house, which has been on the market for the last 6 months. It’s still very much early days yet (i.e. I don’t like to count any chickens until contracts have been signed etc), but, sigh, this may have an impact on my sewing. At the minute we are toying with the idea of getting a house built, or perhaps a major renovation project. It’s all still quite uncertain, and certainly the first idea will involve months and months of disruption. Friends, I know that you will all relate to this, but…yikes…I am so used to having my little sewing room to myself and locking myself away in the evenings and sewing…it has been the thing which has kept me sane and exercised my brain since I gave up working….I am not looking forward to the upheaval of moving! Still, it might be nice, someday to have a more spacious sewing room with an inspiring view.
Until next time…..
