I win! Again!

So I feel like I've been pretty lucky lately. First I won that cool pattern from Lil Blue Boo. Let me just stop and brag about Ashley from Lil Blue Boo for a minute. She is so cool. Her craftiness and creativity know no bounds. Her blog is truly inspiring. And she has a shop. In it there are some amazing patterns that she has created (and does lots of testing to make sure all the bugs are worked out, which is very nice) and a few things she has made. Also, her patterns are not written like most sewing patterns. There are pictures and written descriptions for every single tiny little step, making it SO easy to follow. I already made a little firefighter sweatshirt for my nephew who turned two and it turned out rather adorable, if I do say so myself. I promise I'll post pictures of it soon, but I want to finish the project I'm working on right now and just upload all the pictures at the same time. I know, I am lazy. Anyway, I am getting side tracked.

Second of all, today I got an e-mail saying that I won this contest over at Oilcloth Addict. Yay yay yay!!! (If you want to see me in all my winning glory click here.) Remember how hard it is to find oilcloth? Well, oilcloth just got a little easier. I would now like to brag about the Oilcloth Addict Etsy shop. It is so fun and pretty over there. And they sell that cool chalk cloth. Although I think my favorite thing about their shop is that they sell smaller pieces together in sets so you don't have to pay quite so much. Super cool. Be sure to go and check it out. I think I have looked at every design they have. Love, love, love it. Oh, and check out her other cool blog here. Yay! Have a great day everyone!
