the undies contest is officially over, which means i have winners to announce! but first, some other things. because it's my blog, and i can blather on if i want. you can skip down to the bottom if you're impatient, of course.
|winnipeg's version of spring. the ground cover is about three feet of snow everywhere.|
it's a full house here again. my little brother has come back home for a bit, and the dog is predictably very excited about having everyone in one place again. it soothes her herding urges, i think. there have been a number of changes in my life recently, and i'm hoping that they all work out at least somewhat positively. one good thing is that i'll be working at spring break camp at my old theatre school. definitely not a terrible way to spend a week. i love that place. i've also been catching up with a bunch of old friends, and there are many more catch-up dates in the near future, so that's pretty fabulous.

finally, it's time to announce the winning lace design, and the winning voter! it looks like the faun's eye stitch will be the lace featured in the upcoming undies. i'll post photos as they get made, of course. runners' up included german honeycomb stitch and wheat in the wind, so they will likely make an appearance at some point as well. and congratulations to cathy! you've won the random draw. there's an email in your inbox with questions for your undies design. they should be ready in the next couple of weeks! and everyone else, fear not. if you'd like your own pair of undies, let me get these puppies finished (that way i'll have an accurate idea of how much time they take to make), and then i'll be posting an etsy update with a custom order button. you can think of your ideal design in the meantime.
your winning stitch. i actually was not expecting this one at all. excited to see how the undies turn out!
