Winner! And Vote! And Stuff!

I love you all. Really, I do. And I wish I could give you ALL fabric, but I am poor and so I had to use the randomometer to pick one of you...So congratulations, Elle, of Elle in da coop! You will get a FQ of the seafoam green boats!
I actually ended up entering the black and white version of the boats, despite the fact that the majority of you said blue. The B+W was a close second, and since the repeat is fairly small, I wanted something that would be very readable in the small preview that is given. So, if you would like, friendsies, please go and VOTE for me! There is a lot of really good stuff in the running, and you should vote for that stuff too, but when you vote for me, you should MEAN it more. Have I mentioned you should vote? Vote here? Is this pathetic? Yes. Am I ashamed? Just a little. Will that stop me? Does it ever? (No. Ask my husband.)
In other. non-ego-driven news, I am participating in a craft fair this weekend, the Honeypot Shop, put on by the Wedding Hive. If you're KC folk, you should come down and check it out, because otherwise I will be lonely, and also, there are going to be a LOT of really cool stuff there. I have been drooling over some of the vendors work online, and am hoping I can control myself and not spend all my change money on goodies for me. It's my first outdoor show, so I invested in one of those canopy things, and tonight I practiced putting it up and taking it down all bys myselfs. It was a roaring success (Up in 15 min, down in 5,) which is a huge relief.
I am elsewheres on the interweb, in little bits and pieces; Jeanee of Dirty Laundry interviewed me for her series "THE WASH, crafty chicks come clean", which will be up next Sunday, but she did a little teaser... and a photo of mine was used in this article by Dotty Logic (who's stuff I ABSOLUTELY ADORE!) about digital fabric printing.
I promise that soonish I will be back with posts that are ever-so-slightly less self centered, and more crafty. I have been sewing like a madperson for all the shows I have lined up (three in a six week period, I am a moron, no?) so casual photographing and musing have been lower on the priority list. Also, have I mentioned that my house is still not unpacked? Yeah, there's that, too. I will be sane again one day, I promise.

I'm pinching myself, Lauren! Thanks SO much. It boggles my mind how you'd do this. But I luv it. Good luck on the contests and sale.
