It's A WINNER!

I'm so pleased to announce that the previous post is a WINNER in TKGA 2009 design competition! 
I've gotta give credit to my adorable model, Katie (who really wants her dress back!) She's my biggest fan and she's only 3 years old. My heart is always warm and fuzzy because she, firstly, inspires a great many designs and, secondly, she prefers wearing what I've made to all the store bought clothing she has!
My husband was out of town on a fishing trip when I got the GOOD NEWS and I was busy being a mom (carting children to their events) - so I gotta also thank my dear friends on ETSY.com and the wonderful gals on RAVELRY.com for sharing in my joy!
...am I famous yet?...

Pins and Needles!

It's already a winner with my little model, Katie!
She keeps asking when she will get "her" dress back. Her dress is the design I entered into this years TKGA design competition. The fact that she loves everything I make for her is good enough for me - but if I can share it with others - well, that's just icing on the cake (of life).
We find out this week how well the dress did in the competition being held in Portland. Wish I could be there but : the husband is on a long deserved fishing trip with his best buddy and SOMEONE needs to cart our 3 kids to their sporting events, school concerts and award banquets that coincidentally pop up on a weekly basis at this time of year.
I was fortunate to meet two other contestants on Ravelry (a knitter's online community) and wish them the very best as well!
