Breaking News!!!

We interrupt this telecast for breaking news!  LOL.  I just had to share a really nice piece of good news.  I'll give you a little background first.  I'm on the Palmer/Pletsch newsletter list.  Late last year they announced a contest looking for entrants who had made a garment from one of their patterns.  Well, it just so happens I finished an embroidered wool jacket from M5984 which I detailed here on my blog.  I entered in December and then promptly forgot all about it.  I didn't even tell anyone but Alan.  Then in February we received the newsletter that announced the winners.  I believe there were 83 or 85 contestants from all over the country.  I didn't expect to win.  I didn't win.  The top 3 winners are absolutely gorgeous!  My talents are modest at best so I didn't expect to do well in a national contest.  So I forgot all about it again.

Then I received this months newsletter.  LO AND BEHOLD!  My jacket made the top 5 as an honorable mention!!!!!  Talk about make my day.  LOL.  Picture me dancing!

If you want to take a look, here's a link to the newsletter.

My jacket is the 4th featured in the newsletter and they even mentioned my blog!

I have finished my third and final muslin for the shell and I'm happy with it.  But that post will be done tomorrow.

That's all for today.
