Howdy!  Before I pick the winner for the Denim, The Next Generation by Martin Storey I wanted to share with you an edit I made on my last post about the V neck sweater that I machine-sewed up to make smaller.  Here 'tis:  9/8: Edited to add a bit more info about how I machine-sew a sweater seam:  First step is to pin it and try it on.  Next step is to machine baste and try on again.  If it's right, sew it again with a zig-zag stitch, I usually do this twice.  Then I cut right next to the zig zag to get rid of the extra sweater fabric to remove bulk.  I then pick a bit at the seam to clean up the loose yarn bits and lastly zig zag the rough edge to clean it up a bit and keep it from shedding more.  This technique has never failed me.  Good luck!

Okie dokie, now for the winner:  Jozeee (Rav ID) from Alberta, Canada; congrats doll, you have won!  I've PM'ed you and as soon as I hear back from you I'll send it right out.  I have a lot of Canadian readers and I want to say thank you for reading.  In a few weeks I'll be visiting Montreal and Quebec City for the first time and I'm really excited!

Thank you all for entering.  I love giveaways and will be thinking about another one soon.  I have something in mind....something that I love and couldn't live without...I'll be back later with that.
