Drawing winners, Celebrate the 70's

Whew, it has been a busy week!  All weekend a voice in my head said, "do the blog drawing - someone may be anxiously waiting to make their 70's creation!"  Time to start thrift store shopping for some Famolare shoes. Heat up that curling iron to perfect your Farrah flip hairstyle. Let's get to it.

GCMom, Kitty and Michelle, please e-mail me your addresses and I will get these in the post to you.

We now return to the current decade and my plan to create much needed casual separates. I am currently crazy for Simplicity 1916, a pattern with 2 different knit tops. I first saw this on Myra's blog, she has done two very pretty versions, here and a revised version with some great hints, here.  I have completed 2 of these tops with maybe one more on the way.

Hydrangea June12SunnyGal garden photo: my favorite mophead hydrangea. There are 7 different hydrangeas here at Casa SunnyGal, all different shades. I am always asked about soil pH and what I do to get the different colors.  Nothing! I figure if they bloom every year I am happy, whatever the color.    Happy Summer Sewing, Beth


  1. Congrats to all the winners:) Thanks for the the hydranga pics....cannot seem to find a happy spot for them in my garden, but its always a thrill to see them.

  2. Yay! Finally, I feel in synch with California as my hydrangea are blossoming right now. They're a lovely creamy colour.

  3. Your hydrangeas are beautiful! and I am looking forward to seeing your new creations :)
