I WON!!!

For the very first time in my life (literally), I have won a drawing. And the thing that makes it worth waiting for? It's a free yard of fabric!!! The Sew,Mama,Sew website has so many beautiful fabrics that I like to meander through and dream about, and each Friday on the blog, there is a drawing to win a free yard of fabric...and I've won. I'm still giddy with shock, but now the real work begins...because how do I choose just one?! I have decided to use the fabric to make an apron. I love to wear aprons, I have been wanting to make a retro apron for quite a while now (a la "Leave it to Beaver", the era when the apron reigned as queen!), and it would be a nice to way to memorialize this momentous occasion in my life (my first-ever drawing-win!) with something that will last a good long time. At least my choice of that era helps to narrow my fabric choices a little bit...so far I am leaning towards Vintage Cherry Red from the Farmer's Market collection...can't you see it with bright red edging? Of course, I am not even halfway through the fabric collections yet. :)

Oh, congratulations! It will look good on you no matter which fabric you choose!

I can see it with bright red...or that wonderful blue that was so popular with the tutti-frutti pattern from that same era! Fun!
