OH MY GOSH!
I won the Pattern Review Refashion/Repurpose Contest ! I think? I don't know how these things work, but voting closed last night and I have the most votes...I guess that means I won! This contest was right up my alley, and after entering, I certainly could see that I was in good company. There were some really cool projects posted by the participants, and there's lots of inspiration there. To repurpose and refashion is as old a concept as making dresses from feedbags, and it's great fun to dream up a new way use old or pre-loved stuff.
This good news was a great way to start the day...I was so excited to tell someone at 6:30am that I texted http://girlsinthegarden.blogspot.com/ right away to share the good news. And then I remembered the time difference...yikes. But at least I didn't wake her up, and I knew she would be the one that would totally "get it." This is an awesome sewing community, isn't it?
This week, I've been decorating my house for Christmas...under great pressure from another knitting friend who is coming for dinner on Saturday. When we were making our plans, she declared that she would not come until our house was fully decked out!
So, time's a wastin'...I've got more work to do!
