Winning and Losing
Thank you for all who voted for my "I Love You Dots" outfit in the Pins & Needles sewing contest! I won! I can't believe it. I totally didn't expect to when I entered, that blew me away. In fact, I feel a little bit guilty about it, to tell you the truth. It's nice to win, but not if everyone else can't win, too! I'd probably be that annoying mom at the soccer game vying for "participation" trophies. :o)
Plus, I feel guilty because actually, I prayed to win. Maybe that was cheating?? I just really wanted to give that $100 donation to Orphan's Lifeline Int'l. But really-all the projects were so great.
OK! I've got that off my chest.
Oh! I was going to tell you guys the story about my project, I almost forgot. So, I mentioned that Pins & Needles sent me the gorgeous materials months and months ago...and being the procrastinator that I am, I "oohed, ahhed" and set it on a shelf in the craft room. Fast forward to September and I realized the night before we left for a week of vacation that my project was due the day after we got back. Ahhhh. Oops. I didn't even know what I was going to make yet!
So when we got back home and I put Paige to bed, I set to work, intending to finish and send it in the next morning.
Enter sewing machine breaking.
Then my husband said he had to "go get a tool" and he drove to Walmart at ten o clock to buy me a sewing machine. (That man loves me.) So he saved the day and I got to finish it! Yay, husband!! He sure has scored a lot of brownie points lately.
And now I'm going to bed. If you've been following me on instagram (@rufflesandstuff) you've probably heard me whining about my ear infection. :o) Now I have two! Goodness! :O) The Dr. said they were pretty bad, so that was validating. (See, husband? I'm not a whiner! I'm practically dying here. Can you hand me that??)
