Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I don't want to sound like I'm tooting my own horn, but I was completely shocked to find out this morning that I actually came in first place for the second season of Refashion Runway!  Seriously, everyone has been so creative over the past several weeks that I just couldn't see a clear winner.  It really could have been any one of us!  All I can say is that the final vote tallies must have been very, very close!  

A big thank you to Beth, a.k.a. The Renegade Seamstress, for hosting Season Two of Refashion Runway.  It has been great fun competing each week with a different, often times challenging, theme.  Each of the ladies competing really went all out to present a beautiful and creative refashion each week.  I am grateful to have been a part of it.  

Thank you to all of you who voted for me and supported me along the way.  I especially appreciate my family's support, as they have been a bit neglected at times over the past few weeks.  Its been a fun journey and I appreciate the new friendships that I have made!  Please keep a watchful eye on these talented and creative women and see what wonderful things they do in the future!

    1. Thanks Deanna! I really wished that you would have been in the competition longer, your emerald challenge was spectacular, as was your Halloween sew along. Maybe next season Beth can do away with the eliminations and just have everyone compete for the full six weeks, with just the weekly winners being announced, and then the final first, second, and third place announced at the end.
