Wow! I got an award and a petrol discount!

Craftster Best of 2012 Winner


Remember the palin bag?? I posted it on Craftster, way back when and it ended up being chosen in the top five for it's category. Surprise! I don't spend much time at craftster these days, more on pattern review, but every now and then, if I've made something and haven't  used a pattern, I'll post it. If you haven't ever checked out craftster.org, you should, there's all kinds of nifty things there.


And this dress:

I was wearing it when I filled the car up with petrol - the attendant loved it so much, he gave me a discount on my fuel! Nice one!

  1. You deserve the award..... as for the discount petrol ...... someone giving away petrol money (ie discount) for what you are wearing - where is this place?

    1. ha ha, sorry BeaJay, it's in Brissie. As it's just down the road from the new house we're buying, tigerboy thinks that I should always go there to fill up the car.

    1. Thank you. A couple of weeks ago we were away for the weekend and a few people stopped me at different points to ask where I bought it, tigerboy says he thinks the main reason is because it's such a perfect fit.

  3. Very pretty! Maybe you should call it your good karma dress.

  4. It gets worn a lot because it's such an easy dress to wear as well as being so light and cool for summer. There's also the bonus of having a woven that doesn't need ironing ;)
