Stupid Burdastyle rating system

In case you haven't been over to Burdastyle recently, they have FINALLY decided to ditch the anonymous ratings system that so many of us hated.   Yay! 

They've also added a favorites ticker and enabled automatic HTML yada yada yada. 


No more anonymous ratings system!

and the winner is:

Emily!  Please send me your mailing address and let me know which one you'd like (or both).  (If you only had your eye on one, I'll generate another number for the remaining pattern.)

It was great to see how many giveaways and tutorials came to life because of Debi's project.  Her roundup of the week can be seen here.  It must have been a jam-packed week of work, getting all that information organized and posted; I haven't even had the chance to read through them all yet.  I hope she takes a little holiday to recover.

Sew Grateful Giveaway


It's Sew Grateful Week over at Debi's place, and although I'm a bit late to the party, I didn't want to miss the chance to participate.  

Since I found MY perfect sundress pattern last week, I've decided to give away these two patterns from my stash.  They are so similar that I know I'll never use them, but don't want them to go to waste.  Please take them!  Please use them!  Please tell me when you've used them so I can see how they look all made up (because I have absolutely no idea how that See & Sew can fit without a back closure). 

It's So Easy 2421 and See & Sew 5296

Sorry for the craptastic photos, but I'm doing this at night with my pocket camera.  Sigh.
 I'll ship anywhere in the world, because really, how much does it cost to ship patterns?  I also don't really care how you get to my blog (reader, follow, bookmark, blogroll, etc.); what's important is that you're here :)  If you decide the pattern isn't for you, and you want to pass this along to someone else, by all means, please do.  It's not like these are priceless antiques!

What am I grateful for?  I was so surprised when I got my first comment on this blog from juebejue (@Petite Republic) because frankly, I didn't know anyone was reading it!  I was doubly surprised when Angela (@Riange Creations) just up and sent me the long-coveted Simplicity 2591 when it was nowhere to be found in Montreal!  I had to smile at being dubbed IAAT, a Leibster and a Versatile Blogger.  I was so happy to be included in the cooler-than-cool NYC meetup last September; I felt like I was hanging with celebrities ;)  And last but not least, I have to say a big thanks to everyone who reads, comments and gives advice here on this little blog.  When you don't have crafty people in your daily life, it's nice to be able to virtually visit every evening over a cup of tea.  Or sometimes something a bit stronger.   

Edit:  OK, so apparently I'm not the most organized poster, because I forgot to mention that I'll close this giveaway on midnight, Feb. 14th.  Please let me know which one you'd like (or both).  OK, now it's a bit more clear!
