Winner! Other Stuff!

(The following photo is totally irrelevant to this post. But I love it. And I never talk about happy little woodchuck, but he deserves his day in the sun. )
Ok, really, your haikus were awesome. And I should have mentioned, probably, that I was going to draw randomly and it was not a poetry-dance-battle... so hopefully the fierce competition didn't keep anyone from entering. In any case, the random number picker has spoken, and it doth declare that the winner is...

Abby, of the delightful blog Orange Peel! Who write this lovely little ditty:

(Can a haiku be called a ditty? Is that the way ditty is spelled? The world is indeed full of mysteries.)

So! Thank you all for entering, I wish I could send you all the things, but I do not have that many pouches. And, speaking of pouches, I made another one from Jeni's awesome pattern, and wrote about it over here on Bon Bon Atelier's blog. I made some minor additions to the pattern, so check it out if you're so inclined- they really are fabulous and quick-ish little things to make.
Also, I have been On The Internest! I am calling it the internest from now on, because I like it, and because isn't it TIME for another ridiculous thing to call it? Do you guys remember when we all called it the World Wide Web? Which, I guess we still do, in URL form, but we said ALL THOSE WORDS to describe it, all the time. No longer: it is now the internest, to me anyways.

Wait, I was talking about something? Yes, I was tooting my proverbial horn. Sorry. I was on True Up, which is awesome because I love Kim and I love True Up. Here on the Visual English Alphabet, and here, on the custom fabric, including the Theo pattern. Also, Jennifer of Secondhand Dinosaur did a mention of my ASL fabric, as well as Samarra Khaja's. (Which, ok, when her fabric came out several months ago, I was all, DRAT, I am TOO LATE! But then I decided not to trash all of my sad little hands, and went ahead with it. The world can hold approximately 50,000 cat fabrics, it can handle 2 ASL prints.) And Ara Jane, of you know what I love? posted some lovely photos of the fabric, as well as the fabric that her adorable daughter Ingrid inspired.
Also, can we talk about how happy this makes me? Someday I hope to see my name on selvedge, but it is just as satisfying to have my name be a tag on True Up.

OK! I am done showboating. But thanks for listening, and for haikuing, and for generally being awesome people. Your hair looks nice today, did you get it cut?
