Sew News Magazine Giveaway Winners

At least in America, the upcoming weekend marks the official start of summer. The grocery stores are busy with people buying all sorts of things to grill outside. Many have planned a long weekend getaway to somewhere fun. I'll be doing none of the above. I'm looking forward to a weekend in my garden, maybe a hike with my dog Gracie. So a nice relaxing, and hopefully productive weekend ahead.

I've missed posting the last 2 days. Here's what I was doing...

Before you think I'm some ace mechanic, I am not! I wouldn't fly an airplane that I alone worked on!!! I do things like open up all the panels for inspection, take out the seats and carpet, take off the propeller. I'm really good at taking things apart :) But, I can put them back together too. The mechanic tells me what to do, I do it and then he inspects my work. Every year when the annual inspection rolls around, I always learn something new and I have a good time in the process. But I'm beat when I get home! 

So, I need to announce the winners of the new June/July issue of Sew News.


And the winners are.....

Angela from Sewing Dreams Blog. 

Beth from Sunny Gal Studio

And finally, Mad14kt.

A note about Mad14kt. I was so happy when her name came out of the bag. I think she has entered every giveaway I've had since the beginning of this blog and yet has never won. But, without fail, she always congratulates the winners. Such a great lady :) So a special congratulations to you! 

Please email me at sewbussted@yahoo.com with your mailing info so I can get the magazines out to you.

Wherever you live, I hope the upcoming weekend is relaxing and fun!
Be sure to pop back by tomorrow as I have something rather fun up my "sleeve."

Happy Friday!

  1. Personally, I love being an assistant grease monkey/minion.. That is how I've learned all the how to handy man plumbing, drywall, welding and whatnot tasks I have been shown. Kudos to you for getting greasy!

  2. Congrats to the winners! I don't know Mad14kt or Angela, but Beth is so sweet and has such a helpful blog - glad she was one of the winners also!

  3. Looks like a great issue Rhonda, and I love the pic of you busy at work by your plane! Hope you enjoy the weekend!

  4. Congrats to the winners :).

    I remember when we recovered the wings of our tripacer. What a job! And what fun we had!

  5. Congrats to the lucky winners!
    LOL; I enjoy taking things apart and then putting them together since I was a child! It started with puzzles, Lego's, then anything with intriguing mechanics (ancient clocks, sewing machines, cars, motorbikes, and the list goes on...) and electronic circuitry! That's probably why I took my degree in electronics and also a reason for enjoying garment construction so much :)

    Thanks Rhonda for such kind words!!! :)

  7. My magazine arrived today! Thank you so much!!!

    Continue to be so CREATIVE ... FIESTA :)
