Good morning and happy Friday! I would like to announce the winner from last week’s blow out of a post Meet the Designer Rhonda Buss!
But, first I would like to take everyone who commented that they had this gorgeous fabric from Bali, Thailand, Paris, Scotland, Australia, California and on and on around the world, and take you all by the collective shoulders and tell you to MAKE SOMETHING with that beautiful fabric! Make it now! Life’s to short to wait!!!
Okay, not that I can talk, ’cause I’m a fabric hoarder just like the best of ‘em, but please do me a favor, get a pattern this week and make something beautiful. Post it on our Flickr page if you’d like. It’d be fun to see.
The winner who was randomly chosen by Random.org is Jeannie (of circles of clarity – in case there are multiple with the same name)
