I'm a winner AND a grinner!!!

It has been a great mail week.

From top left corner:
  • My first purchase of a clothing pattern. I have admired this reversible coat ever since Amy Butler released her 'Love' fabric line and it appeared in the promotional material. The pattern has only just been released and I'm going to attempt my first proper garment. Wish me luck!!
  • An oinky brooch that I won over at Cath's for admitting that I love bacon ... even though my rabbi might disapprove. Thanks Cath!! Here's a better photo ...
And another thing keeping me grinning this week .... we took our kids to see snow for the very first time.
It was so magical watching them discover the fun to be had!

But I must say, I could use some warmer weather. I'm SO over the cold.

Wishing you a sunny day!

Andi :-)

Well done on the win Andi - what a great way to boost your stash in a fiscally responsible way!
Can't wait to see the coat and you swishing about in it.

Oh I love that dress!
I am jealous of your trip to the snow. I hope we get to go there this winter.

I've been eyeing (sp?) that darling coat pattern too - cannot wait to see what you think! And you can just go right ahead and send some of that cooler weather our way - we are so over the heat!!! Congrats on your winnings and on keeping your promise!!

Great loot!
How funny about the bacon! You really did deserve to win.

I'm with you on that Amy Butler pattern. Do you think you can make it up by the 24th for my All Amy Butler sew & tell?! I would love to see it!

I love good mail weeks!
