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. http://palmerpletsch.com/fashion-from-real-people/fashionFROMrealpeople-Issue2.pdf
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.
