A Major Award


 No, not a leg lamp!

I won the first Material Monday sponsored by Club BMV! Soon, several yards of chenille buffalo check will arrive at my door, or the mailbox, depending on how they send my prize.


Club BMV is a promotion of the McCall's Pattern Company, which publishes Butterick, McCall's and Vogue Patterns. In return for a $15 annual fee, you receive discounts on patterns, advance notices on sales, etc. Material Mondays is the best benefit they've come up with so far. All you have to do is be a member and send an email each week. You win if they draw your name.

Of course, I'll have to come up with an appropriate Butterick, McCall or Vogue Pattern to use with my fabric. It would be the right thing to do. Right now, I'm thinking about a jacket.

I'll post more details when the fabric arrives. Be sure to enter if you're a member; there's a link to the page above. The next prize is a fabulous piece of leopard print silk blend.
