A Migraine, A Winner, A New Contest and Two Awards

Okay, I had a terrible migraine this long weekend (it was Family Day in Ontario) so I fell behind on my February Challenge sewing. I am extending February into March for one week. I am just determined to finish four pair of pants...one of which is 90% finished and another is already cut out and just waiting to be sewn up.

I also let the February Burda Magazine Give-away run later than St Valentine's Day...again, I blame my migraine...the winner is Jody Sears....I've emailed you Jody but if you're reading this, send your address and I'll post it today.

And I am humbled to learn that I have been awarded two awards....

There are rules and obligations to these wonderful awards, the answers to which I will post  later this week...

Finally I another Burda give-away,if you're sick of snow and cold, I'm giving away the Aug 2002 Burda (lots of pics below so you can get an idea...) to help warm you up. Just leave a comment and you're entered in the draw (oh, and I'll mail anywhere in the world and please let me have a way of contacting you!). This winner will be picked March 5th...


  1. Boo for migraines. Count me in for your drawing. I'd like a closer look at the kids plaid outfits.

  2. Congrats on your awards!!

    Please enter me for the Burda draw. I love the look of the olive green (?) skirt and top.

  3. Congrats on your awards :)
    Please enter me also for the Burda. I have yet to find one in person and I'm so curious to see what this magazine is about (well, sewing of course) - Thanks!

  4. Oh I love the kids patterns. Count me in!

  6. Count me in!!! Mandi at gmail dot ca. I love Burda and this issue looks fantastic

  7. I'll pass on the contest, I'm still working on the issue I won. I really should get back to the dress I started while it's still winter!

    I've decided my headache was(is) a migraine. I get auras with migraines so without the aura it takes me a bit to realize what's going on. But day 3 of feeling stupid and noise sensitive on top of the headache and I think it's more than "just" a headache.

  8. Hi, I am sorry you have had a migraine, I hope you are getting back to your normal self - not surprising that your February challenge is not completed. I think though the challenge is to challenge ourselves. I've joined the challenge as well, so I guess we'll cross paths over blogs. I won't go in the drawing, I already subscribe to Burda magazines. I'll leave it for someone else.
