We HAVE A Winner!

Thank you people for your votes - obviously it's the keyhole neckline. Please always feel free to be brutally honest with me so I don't walk out of the house wearing something that makes me look droopy. When I go back and look at the pics I'm surprised I even entertained that idea. And here's the fabric - it's actually purple but looks kind of blue-ish in the flash.

The crinkle from Gorgeous Fabrics wasn't stretchy at all, and the other fabric with holographic "sequins" only had 1 yard left, so there was no choice but crushed panne from Hancock's.

Speaking of Hancock's, I WON the fleece contest! Yippeee! I had called on Friday and was told they were calling the winners Saturday and I could pick up my item Sunday, so after I didn't get a phone call yesterday I went to get my jacket. I told the woman at the register I entered an item in the contest that I wanted to pick up and she interrupted me and said, "And you won." I said, "No, I didn't get a phone call yesterday," and she said, "No, I'm telling you that you won - I was going to call you today. I've been out with the flu." (Now didn't I feel guilty for all that whining about how long they were taking!) Then she high-fived me. (Have I washed my hands yet?)

Shockingly, there were 5 entries, 2 of which were hats. The Daphne store had 3 entries from 3 friends who made capes and a coat. See, I went to Daphne to see if they had a better selection of panne, and also to sneak a peek at their contest entries, which they had hanging by the register. And I should feel lucky I got notified today, because Daphne hasn't chosen a winner yet. (Don't they know the national contest is on February 5th?)

Anyway, my $100 gift card will arrive in late February. Now the waiting begins to see how the national contest goes - aaaarrrrrgh!
