And the Winner is......

I finished my errands, and after fighting with my daughter's laptop for a bit (she takes after my mom and manages to find every virus in the world and gets it on her computer), I was able to sit down and generate a number for a winner! I used for a random number from 1-20(the number of blog comments). And I got ........13!

And that makes the winner..... Aid Castillo Misigoy!! Congratulations! And thank you to all you participated. I am hoping to do another give-a-way after the holidays.

Preparing for our Next Trip...and a give-a-way!

This month, my boutique group, Main Street Boutiques, had a Movie Night launch and I offered up 2 dresses to be auctioned off. The first was a beautiful Christmas dress made with a brand new pattern called the Lauren. I love this new pattern! It has so many possibilities...puffy sleeves, no sleeves, long sleeves, 3 different necklines, 2 types of aprons...It is awesome! The Christmas dress I actually made for my daughter for our upcoming trip this December, but offered to do a custom made one.

The Christmas tree is hand appliqued with several machine appliqued mickey ornaments and some mickey button ornaments! The bodice is the new Lauren, but the skirt is actually the Grace by the same pattern designer.

The back of the bodice has several rows of elastic for a better fit. I added length for a bigger bow, because I love long tails!  Two rows of ruffles on the back and a large bottom ruffle.

The second dress I auctioned off was an Aristocats dress. I found the perfect fabric for the dress and had to go with the Lauren pattern again. This time I used only the Lauren for the whole dress. The skirt has an apron with an applique of Marie on it. The bodice has the Aristocats logo on it.

  I have made several new shirts this month as I have been testing designs for froufroubyheathersue. She does great designs and I love her new line of Christmas characters.

Christmas Ariel!

Christmas Daisy
Christmas Minnie
Christmas Tink
My daughter has a new crush this month and it is Luigi from Super Mario. For her 9th birthday she wanted a Super Mario theme and she helped design this dress for her party. I think she will get plenty of use out of it!

Now, you have read this far and you deserve a reward! I am doing a give-a-way this month. I will make, for one lucky fan, 1 lounge set for a child from size 1-14!  Included is a pair of easy fit flannel pj pants and an appliqued top. I have several fabrics to choose from including Perry the Platypus, Tiana and Tinkerbell..along with some winter themed designs! The lounge set will be custom made to the winner's measurements and will be mailed within 5 weeks.
