Pattern Giveaway Winner

On Saturday night midnight came and went, and so I've drawn the winner of my first ever pattern giveaway. And the winner is...

... lakaribane!

Congratulations lakaribane - you've won yourself a copy of Vogue 1192!  I have your email address so I'll be in touch to get your mailing details soon. I hope you enjoy the pattern!  

If you missed out there will be more pattern giveaways coming up - stay tuned!

To draw a winner I counted up entrants (9) numbered in date-time order of comment and then used the random number generator over at with 1 as the minimum and 9 as the maximum.  I hit "Generate" and got a "5" - so the 5th entrant was the winner. I did take a screenshot - but then I realised the screenshot proved nothing, as I could have rerun the calculation to get the result I wanted and you'd be none the wiser! In any event a screenshot of a random number is pretty dull.  Next time around I may use a pseudo-random number generated based on clock time so that I can rerun it and prove my honesty :-)  

In other news

I feel remiss in not posting much in the way of sewing progress this weekend.  My Vogue 1158 dress is proceeding nicely, with not too many issues (I won't count redoing the zipper several times), slowed by the fact of several kids' parties over the weekend and a fair amount of tiredness. No photos to show though as the little bits of sewing have been late in the evenings.  The Vogue 1203 top was probably not photographed as badly as it should have been - thank you so much for your encouragement, but I don't think I would be comfortable wearing it - I can imagine sniggers from passersby and colleagues, all merrily assuming I was (not very artfully) trying to create a false bust. The back is also not looking so grand. It will probably go to Vinnies.


  1. Wow, I'm sooo happy! My mojo has been missing lately so it's kick to the system to win this. Thank you again for holding the drawing.

  2. Like your explanation about the number generator. IT guy myself, it's nice to see random generators being put to good use.

    About proving your honesty. No need for that: giving away stuff is already proof enough.

    Nice blog.

  3. Agree with the above comment, you have absolutely no need to "prove" your honesty, lol! Why should you?
    I'm sorry your top didn't turn out like you had hoped...
