This sad day has come. The last day of September Sewing Celebration, in honor of National Sewing Month, although it seems rather silly to lament something I will continue [though not with the intensity and frequency this month has demanded.] It's been a busy, but rewarding 30 days. I've gotten most my family members to participate, I've had such a fun time offering these amazing giveaway prizes and I've made new friends, for certainly it wouldn't have had the affect on me it did without actual people reading and commenting as I went along. So, thank you to my family who shared their talents. Thank you to all those who donated such marvelous wares for the giveaways, and thank you dear readers for playing along and leaving your kind words here.

This is the last day to enter all the giveaways for the month. They are all separate, and you must leave your comments on the respective post to be entered.

My weapon of choice. Ginghers.
Winner: Julia, stop cutting bags of Sister Schubert's rolls open with your sewing scissors!

Instructor of choice: Oliver + S. The new School Photo Dress pattern.
Winner: Mere Catholic, I also hope Oliver + S makes women's patterns one day.

Decor of choice: Stained glass stars. And in honor of my September Sewing Celebration, they've created a fabric backed line of stars!
Winner: Anna, glad you're as fond of my dad's stars as I am.

Winner: Ginny, you can cross this off your wishlist!
