It was fun reading all of the exotic places you wish to visit and it was nice to see how many wish to visit family! 
We haven't planned our vacation yet. I still have to see how my knee heals...than I will know if we can do a sightseeing vacation ( London, Venice or Holland) or if I have to do a laying around sunbathing vacation ( Greece or Portugal ?)...even if it means laying in our garden as my Mr.M. tosses some steaks on the BBQ.....I am also happy !

On to the winners...
Since so many entered ...I decided to pick 3 winners...3 is my lucky number ! 
2 with the Rafflecopter thing ..and 1 from the names in the comments

Fine & Dandy Sewing Tote SAL...

...as some of you know, I think my Fine & Dandy pouch pattern is a versatile pouch for all kinds of things ( men, woman & children) ....but when I designed it, I never imagined it turned into a Sewing Tote! Yes, that is what Christine one of my testers and best pattern hacker did!!

I thought some of you would love to turn your Fine & Dandy pouches into Sewing Totes...so I am having a Hack SAL on Facebook hosted by Christine...she will show you "Step by Step" how she turned the Fine & Dandy Pouch into this awesome Sewing Tote !
Love how the ruler slides in behind the handle! Clever!!

She even used elastic on one side to hold her supplies.
If you would like to make this version of the Fine & Dandy pouch....

 The " Live" SAL will be held April 21 - 23 on Facebook. Join my group to enter the Event . You have till April 29th to finish your Sewing Tote to be eligible for the Giveaways!!
Did I mention there will be 3 prizes!!

I will also post the SAL steps here on the Blog, for those that can't make it over the weekend & would like to sew it later.

on Day 1 - April 21: Cutting & fusing, constructing outer pockets, handles & Faux piping
on Day 2 - April 22: Lining, pleated pockets, Ellen pockets & elastic
on Day 3 - April 23: Putting it all together ( zipper, side seam, boxed corners, turning & topstitching ) 

If you don't have it already...you can pick the pattern up *HERE*
Dnn't forget you still have time to enter my Giveaway...you might just win the pattern !! 

Hope to see you there !!
