Winning & More monster making

Had a bit of excitement today when I read through the blogs I'm following - I actually won a giveaway.  Make it Perfect had a pattern giveaway for their fab A+ skirts and I was picked to win it.  The strange thing was that when I was in Fabricland in Salisbury yesterday I picked up a remnant of cotton that I liked the pattern of. 

I thought it that it'd make a lovely skirt for the winter, but the only problem was that I didn't have a pattern - how strange that I should win the pattern today.  I can't wait for it to arrive, although I'll have to work out which one of the lovely variations to make first.

Sewing-wise, I accomplished quite a bit today.  I've finished 8 of the 10 monster bags that I'd been making,
and then I also made 2 of the felt monsters to go inside the bags.
Quite a good days work, all I need to do now is to photograph them properly, add them to my website & sell, sell, sell.
