Monday Morning Housekeeping

Good morning everyone. This morning I was cleaning up my email inbox and thought I would share some of the tidbitås I found. First off, there was a nice email from Kate MccGwire, who wrote to say thanks for last week's blog post. She also wrote tell us this: "I, too, have printed some tea towels--thought you would like to see. I make them to thank the lovely 200 racing pigeon people that send me their pigeon feathers once their birds have moulted twice a year."

I wish I had some bird feathers to trade with her. It is very lovely.

Next up we received an email from Anita Willis to inform us about a article she posted regarding the Milkman's Daughter on Tourism Victoria's blog. You can read it here and you can check out Anita's own blog here. We printed some fabric for her a few weeks ago for an upholstery project she started at home; Can't wait to see the picture, Anita!

And now what you are all waiting for.... The contest winner is..... I have no idea!! How am I supposed to choose, they were all so good. Some are funny, some are witty, there are a few romantic ones and even one from a man (I kind of want to pick him cause I want to see him in a dress). It doesn't help that everyone in the studio today has a different opinion. So I think I am going to do the old fashioned put the name in the hat and leave it to fate.

....So ten minutes and forty-two entries
later we have a winner! Congratulations Mia! It is the Garden State Dress!

Thanks to everyone who put in a submission--you made my morning. Liz printed the fabric this weekend and Steph started sewing this morning. Your new Garden State Dress should be in the shops by the weekend.

I'm going to hunt up the sound track for the movie "Garden State" now and and help cut some more dresses.

Have a great week!

Mia, email me your size and mailing details!!!

I am so glad Garden State won! Even though it wasn't my idea, it was my favourite entry. Congratulations Mia.

Hey Susanna - I thought Frollick was pretty witty!

Thanks Trish.

Yay Mia!

Although the draw was random, it is very fitting that the customer who has made the most blog comments should win a blog contest.

Love the name too.

Thank you to all of you for submitting your suggestions. It was really fun to read them!
