Well, what do ya know?!?!

Note 2: Sweet Katrina at Edelweiss Patterns just dumped a lot of sugar in my lemonade :D She said that she'd send me the pattern anyway! 

Note: turns out, there was another Jo March (what are the odds of that!?!) and she was the gal who won it. Oh, well. BUT, I am not to be deterred and I'm going to order the pattern and make the dress anyway :D Such is life...right? When the world gives you lemons, make LEMONADE!!!

That giveaway I posted so hastily about yesterday evening - I WON IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I first heard of Edelweiss Patterns from Joanna's blog and thought, "Yeah! Somebody made a pattern for the dress I've been longing to make! Now to save up for the pattern and fabric....hopefully before I'm seventeen" *chuckle*

Then, last night, I heard from a friend that there was a giveaway for the pattern on Sense and Sensibility Patterns, so on a whim, I entered. I've only won one giveaway before - from Eden - and Leia won it for me :D

Thanks Miss Jennie for hosting this! And thank you Katrina for the lovely pattern! As soon as I make it, I'll post up pictures for you see :)

*bouncing off the walls*

"I am sixteen going on seventeen innocent as a rose....." *giggle*

  8. Congrats! I didn't enter because I bought it the day I found it, which was a couple of days before the giveaway. :-( But I'm really excited now. Still deciding on a color. :-)
