This is a Wiksten pdf download pattern that I found courtesy of a link from Kerry's site verykerryberry. Now, of course, she was doing the more difficult (for me) Tova which has *gasp* sleeves but when I saw there was a simple tank pattern there, as well, I immediately thought that would be a way for me to try to make myself a piece of clothing. Many weeks after downloading...my wonderful mom-in-law Jean took me in hand and helped me get a start. So good to get a kick in the pants for motivation sometimes ;). Just need to put the neck and armhole binding on it now. I had read that this was a pattern that ran big so I went with the small...I think I may try another in a medium next as this one fits but there is no "wiggle" room and since I was in a hurry to begin I failed to prewash...bad, bad, Kris :).
My other BIG news is this...I won a custom quilting from the very talented Marcia of Marcia's Crafty Sewing & Quilting blog. Here is what she says I've won...
Kris wins free quilting, free batting and free thread on a little quilt. Free quilting can be over all quilting or detailed free style quilting or thread painting/quilting -- Winner's choice!
Kris can choose to have a small wall hanging quilted, a place mat, a small table runner, or table topper, 4 mug rugs or any little quilt -- no larger than 20" by 20". Winner provides quilt top and quilt backing and shipping back and forth.
I had so much fun doing Madam Samm's Table Topper Blog Hop and this win just is icing on the cake!
I'm very excited and have an idea of what I want to ask for, more details to come! Thanks so much Marcia!!
