Apologies – anyone who does not read this
Call to order for the meeting to begin………….
By random selection (independent observer – in other words – teenage son) the following are the winners in the recent pattern GIVEAWAY. Entries opened on 29th February 2012 and closed officially on 7th March (tea-time – GMT). Competition was open to everyone and the chairperson was impressed with the number of interested parties which may encourage the committee to consider further such enterprises.
Well done to the above names selected and thanks to everyone who left a comment. It is intended that the relevant pattern collections will be collated and parcelled before the weekend and in the post Saturday morning. Please forward all necessary and essential e-mail correspondence before then. Go to ‘view my complete profile’ in ABOUT ME box and there is a link – e-mail – in there. Click on this and send the information. Thanks.
The chairperson is also a winner this week of the Versatile Blogger Award. She would like to extend her appreciation to Pauline of ptrifty for the nomination and passing on of this prestigious honour.
To retain above said award, the chairperson must complete a series of tasks to ensure that specified rules are not broken or avoided. Breaking of these rules would be in contravention of the international G87 summit meeting of global sewing fanatics, hosted at Clougher, 2010.
Rule 1 – Add the award badge to the winning blog page – duly done.
Rule 2 – Thank the blogger who gave it – profusely thanked already.
Rule 3 – List the rules – project completed by end of this evening’s meeting.
Rule 4 – List 7 random things about the chairperson that the public may wish to know but that will not endanger or cause them psychological damage, nor will risk the liberty of the chairperson.
- Love my job but wish I didn’t have to work.
- Love my family but also like it sometimes when they’re not around
- Have a cat but is not a mad-cat-lady (like the woman round the corner who has 17)
- Often is too honest but is gradually learning to keep my mouth shut
- Aspires to owning a haute couture Chanel suit
- Doesn’t purchase lottery tickets – so No. 5 remains aspiration
- Appreciates the support and camaraderie of fellow internet sewers – and is actually indebted to many of them for the finished objects hanging in her wardrobe.
Rule 5 – The ritualistic passing on of the award to 15 deserving and conscientious bloggers who in the opinion of the chairperson are entitled to be nominated for their diligence, demonstrated skill and achievements in the world of blogging and specifically in the sewing related category.
Hence, this is intended as a small token of encouragement to continue, improve and excel at all endeavours. The Chairperson would like it to be made known in the minutes of this evening’s meeting that this list is not by any means complete and comprehensive but a mere sample of the innovative and inspiring individuals who decide to share and support one another.

2. Suzy of Suzy Bee Sews
