I'm not usually a self congratulatory kind of person, but I won!

I entered the rainbow quilt tutorial in the sew mama sew tutorial competition, and I found out yesterday I was one of the 5 winners! I get a $25 voucher to spend in the sew mama sew shop - can't wait - what shall I buy????!

back to the real world we have to go on a trainer hunt after school, as Miss K is going on a residential activity trip with school next week, and they need 2 pairs of trainers - I'm expecting them to come back wet and covered in mud, so we're aiming to buy cheap and cheerful!considering last time we went shopping for shoes I wanted to divorce both my children I'm not expecting it to be easy.........


  1. Hurray!!! That's great!! And good luck with the shoe shopping :-)

  2. Congratulations Lady Tess! Oh what to spend your prize money on.

    Hope the shoe shopping goes well.

  3. Congrats on your scoop!!
    Good luck with the shoes..last time I took R she left her $120 orthotic in one of the 12 or so pairs so tried on in the discount shoe warehouse which has thousands of pairs piled up on tables..realised what she'd done when we got home (a 1 hr drive later) So back next morning and 45 mins later found it!! aaaaggghh

  4. You deserved that win - congratulations!
    Trainers come up remarkably well in the washing machine - I've put some real horrors in there after school trips and cub/scout camps and they've come out brand spanking!

  5. Congratulations on winning the tutorial competition. Love the quilt. Hope you got the trainers ok. How I remember that stage and x 4, I really had to psyche myself up for shopping.


  6. Congratulations! I love your rainbow quilt.

  7. Yay! Have you decided what to buy yet? I've gone for some Amy Butler prints.
    Good luck with the shoe-shopping!
