Sewing mantras... and giveaway winner!

Woah, the Beignet pattern giveaway was popular! Moreover, what I wise lot you are with your sewing mantras. I really enjoyed reading all the entries and had to pick out a few of my favourites to highlight here:

"Make a mock up, not a cock up!"

"When in doubt, add pleats"

"Try, cry, then try again"

"Just keep stitching, even only if it's a little at a time"

"It's not a mistake, it's a design element"

"Would I skip this bit if I was making it for someone else?"

"I could definitely make that!"

"Oh sod it, just give it a go"

"It doesn't count unless you finish it"

"It's not a stash, it's a queue!"

"If the mistake doesn't show, you got away with it"

"It's a hobby, take the time to enjoy it"

"Get off of the sewing blogs and do your own sewing!"

"Better to have sewn and lost than never to have sewn at all"

"When you start gibbering, it's time to stop"

Okay, so on to the winner of the Beignet pattern, which I had to pick by random number generator as the entries were all too good. And the winner is...

I'll leave you all with Gina's sewing mantra:

"DREAM, READ instructions, FIT it, CAREFULLY sew, and IRON!"
