First, a little anecdote from today:
Today my son, Jace, went to the Australia Zoo for his grade 1 field trip. The zoo is only about 15 minutes from our house and we've been lucky to go a few times while living in Australia, but today was pretty special to him, because he got to see it with all of his little school friends.
When asked what his favorite part of the day was, he said "I saw leopards! And Crocs! But the best part was a huge snake that could eat a WHOLE KID!" "Really?" I said, "a whole kid?" "Yup, not half a kid, but a WHOLE kid." I see that learning about halves and whole items in math class is sinking in, good to know. Anyway, I checked the website and found out about the new Albino Burmese Python.... and at 14feet long and 45kg, yes I think it could indeed eat a whole kid! I'm not partial to snakes, but look at that color!

On to the pattern giveaway!
When I released my last two patterns, I held a pattern giveaway on Facebook right when I listed my bag in the shop. Well, I listed my Steph In The City bag two days ago, and didn't post a pattern giveaway. I don't know what I was thinking. So I posted one this morning over on my Facebook page. If you haven't commented on the post yet, get over there! If you have already purchased the Steph pattern, no worries, I will refund the money for your pattern purchase if you are one of the THREE winners. The winners will be picked using the random generator at random.org on Thursday at 10:00 am, EST Australia. Hmm... roughly 38 hrs from now. I'm getting a great response from this pattern, and I do think it's my best one yet. I'd love to hear what you think!
The Step In The City Bag tried and tested at Zaaberry:

Ruby, along with Roselee from Jane of all Trades, was kind enough to trial and test my sewing pattern and extreme short notice. They provided me with some suggestions on how to tweak my pattern and I'm extremely grateful. There are plenty of other pictures of this bag, inside and out, on Ruby's blog, and while you are there - please have a look at her tutorials. You might remember Ruby from last week, she hosted an Emmaline Pattern giveaway on her blog and it received a lot of interest. Thank you, Ruby - you are a gem! OH I REALLY, HONESTLY DIDN'T PLAN THAT!
Thank you, for stopping by...
