OKAY...the names are fabulous!

I am officially ending the "name that mannequinn" contest...and I must say that I am overwhelmed with great ideas for her name!
You are all such imaginative people...It's going to be really tough choosing! But I will force myself to narrow it down to my top three favorites, two of whom will get a little suprise gift, and the winner will get a Grand Prize, TBA. (to be announced.) I am toying with all sorts of ideas for prizes, and I'm not sure yet, but the winner will definitely get something handmade by me.

"SHE" was indeed handmade by me, from start to finish. This was one of the more ambitious projects I've ever taken on. But it's almost weird; I feel in a scarey way strangely akin to Dr. Frankenstein! No worries, I did not raid any graves for bodies, or body parts in her creation. She is made of strictly All New Material.
Anyhow, I will be posting further updates on the winners very soon, so stay tuned!

And on another note,
Here are a couple of new photos of those soon to be arriving "boots", and a new bag pattern on the horizon, to name a few.




Be back soon... busy busy busy!
Oh...and if you haven't yet done so, please pause the music list, scroll down, and on the right sidebar there is a video that I want ALL of you to watch, if you will. It would make me very happy, and you too, if you did.

Ah Lila, where to start, Thanks for the info on the Retro Bag handles, so happy that I finally got some! Love the new fabric, it gorgeous!!, The Boots are amazing, can't wait for the pattern, and same with the new bag! Also, I am going to spend these school holidays (holiday time here in Oz!) trying to rework my peasant style maxi skirt for adults, you have no idea how many requests I have had for it - I promise you that when I sort it out I will make you one as your creativity inspires me and I truly appreciate it! Thanks for sharing the video, I loved it, and lastly, the first time I saw your mannequin I was online at 2am coz I couldn't sleep... it scared me a bit :)!! - have a great easter!

Lila,
You are one talented lady- Your mannequin is wonderful like the many creations you have designed.
I look forward to seeing the name that you choose- it will be hard I am sure because there are some really good ones. Good luck to your winners.
Regards,
Anna
