Pre-PatternReview.com Pattern Stash Contest Prep!

Okay, technically it should read "I'm ENTERING The Pattern Stash Contest" but you get the idea.

Yes, that's right- I'm entering my first PatternReview.com contest! I've been meaning to enter a PatternReview.com contest for a while and the timing just seems kind of correct now (actually it probably isn't what with my trip to California coming up soon) and I really do need to use the patterns that I have in my stash instead of just buying more (like I do all the time). The one thing I don't like about this contest is that the winner will be decided based on "points" and you get a point for every pattern you use... so if I've got a bunch of really complex patterns in my stash and someone else has a bunch of really simple knit dresses in her stash, chances are she'll be able to sew more and win. However, I suppose given the nature of the contest, that's really the only way to be fair.

So, I'm sure you're all just dying to hear what patterns I've got in my stash, yes?

Well, it was a little tough to find the patterns that I've had for more than 6 months (and that I haven't used) but I finally found a nice stack of patterns to pick from; here's a sampling of what my selection includes:

Simplicity 1101

McCall's M6250

Butterick B6094

Simplicity 2447

Simplicity 1421

Simplicity 1370

I've got lots of summer patterns to choose from, which is kind of unfortunate considering it's, you know, winter, but there you go. I'll just have to stay inside when I take photos of my creations! Wish me luck and be sure to follow my progress in this contest in the New Year!
