I WON! Woo Hoo!

A few weeks back, OK about a month ago I entered a give away on Aunt Spicy's blog. She was giving away some beautiful fabric, an incredible book of sewing, a lovely shoulder bag and I had to enter, I wanted to win something. I did! I won some beautiful fabric by Jennifer Paganelli.

Oooohh, look something in the mail for me! I love getting things in the mail that aren't bills. For me it's like Christmas, Birthday's, Valentine's rolled into one.

I opened up the envelope and this is what I saw. Isn't it beautiful. Oh wait, let me take it out so you can really see it.

Oh, look a note. It was a very sweet note from JJ. She said that she was secretly happy the mom with all boys won the girliest of the fabric. Guess what, I think that is a pretty good statement, I need a bit of girly once in a while since there is so much testosterone flying around my house (our dog and cat are males too).

Here is an even better look! Isn't it pretty? Now I just need to find the right project for this material. I hope to do the fabric (and JJ) proud.

When I decide what to make I will make sure you all get a chance to see what the special project is. Wish me luck.

I'm with Rhea - I thought the same thing right off the bat. A sarong would be gorgeous!!

As a mom to two little boys myself, you're so right about the whole pink thing. Sometimes you just need a good shot of it.

Welcome to SiTS!! We're glad to have you. Em
