A fugly winner on a warm Autumn Day

So my first post has been and gone. Up to the second post now, and so begins the real test of this blogging adventure! You see, every so often in my younger years I would start a diary or a journal. It would start wonderfully, pages upon pages of waxing poetic (or so I thought) and then the second day it was shorter and less poetic, and the third day usually didn't happen and by week two the whole thing was over! Does anyone else ever have this problem? Anyway, I think with blogging it will be different for a few reasons but mainly because I can include photos (love taking them but don't seem to do it enough) and because I am going to share this adventure with a friend. Hopefully we can get each other through those low productivity times, right Cath?!

OK. the winner of my fugly fabric is #5 commenter Jodi! Sorry couldn't manage to cut and paste the random generator screen grab. There were actually 2 Jodi's out of the lovely people who entered which meant that there was a 4/15 chance the winner would be a Jodi--I think that is pretty cool--but hopefully the other Jodi is OK with missing out this time. I am pretty sure she will be OK :)

Meanwhile, some pics? Well here are a few that kind of capture the week that was...hope yours was just as sunny!

--sewing more boys pants--

So Congratulations #5 commenter Jodi #1 (clear as mud!)--I will be in touch to get your address to send off your prize!

Blessings
Helen

    1. Thanks Jodi--such a small world!!! Yes the cord is divine, we have a few different colours but I think that orange one was a gift from the gorgeous Suze over at MakeSpace :)
