Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner!

Last month, I asked for guesses on the year this fabulous pattern was published...

Since you were good sports and played along, I've decided to select a winner with the closest guess, rather than requiring the exact year. And, with her guess of 1972, Melissa wins! The year was actually 1971. And yes, I did wear one of these, exactly as you see it featured above. Hey...I was eight, and it was the 70's...

For Melissa's nearly-accurate guess, she'll be receiving a set of my summery Hummingbirds & Dragonflies coasters. I know, I know...I said the prize would be knit...but summer's coming and these just seemed like fun.

Thanks for playing along!


  1. Dragonflies are beautiful. Did you get it at Stitchin Post? You're amazing seamstress!

  2. Woo hoo! Though I can't remember what I did yesterday, I do remember the early 70's a bit too well. You all were too young then for it to make much of an impression, I guess.

    I can't wait for my coasters - perfect color for my living room!

  3. M - And it'll give me a chance to actually SEE you!

    S - Yes, I did get the fabric at the Stitchin Post. Thanks!
