Faithful Feral Followers, our January ran by at cheetah speed and brought new friends, new undertakings and many great makes from across the animal- loving Sewcialist universe! I have to admit that I didn’t think that my silliness would catch on and I expected to be alone at the primal inn a good bit, but many saw the opportunity to wrestle or relish the untamed and I think that we are all the better for it. Sniff, sniff. I hate to see it end, but will it really end? NO! It cannot! Wherever there is spotted or stripey textiles, we will be there! In our hearts, on our heads and even on our knickers- the show will go on! On New Years Eve when we turn the calendar to 2014, remember to get your cat on- because January is Jungle time!!!!
Now, as promised, it’s time to award some of our players and reflect once more in our Special Awards segment! YAY!!!! Wait- who’s this? Why its Byrdie Couture in an amazing Minoru! Not late- because animal print never goes out of style!
Isn’t that right, Bolts, Bobbins and Blunders?
I’m so pleased that this lady joined the party, too- it’s Cation Designs in a twirl-worthy leopard dress!
Now I know there is another awards show tonight, right Tempest? But now we are getting down to the most important one! Yes! The Official, First ever Awards for Excellent in Animal Print…..The Annie Awards!!!
My International award selection panel led by myself, 3 dachshunds and a Mole have laboured intensely to select these names- they do not sum up the whole of our event, merely some of our notables- all are honored for their work and I thank you- each and every one of you for your inspiration, your style, your willingness and your indulgence! I’ve had a ball seeing this grow from my foolish idea to wooly-mammoth sized online foolishness!
In no particular order, because all of our participants were FABULOUS:
Most Meetings at the Watering Hole: Maria
Gorgeous things requiring discretion: Sewforward
Most ready to hibernate: Sew Exhausted
Phew! I’m exhausted! Now I must ready for that other award show and lesser carpet event.
**Winners- if I do not already have your address, thru various fabric stalking activities, please email me at bmoviemouse(at)gmail(dot)com and a gorgeous certificate suitable for framing will be sent your way!!!
Again, as I and my amazing team here at Grievances Central thank you and wave goodbye until next time….remember- It’s better in the Wild!
