I love this! I am definitely an Anglophile - even married a Brit - LOL! 
Thanks so much for the chance to win!
Let me know your address and I will mail the pattern out to you!

But all is not lost... everyone is a winner.
Did you realize that the Summer Olympics start in London in just over one month from now.
The soccer (football) championships are just finishing up... they are a great prelude to the Olympics.
Everyone over there must be so excited right now with all of the activities!
I can almost hear the singing!
So, are you starting to catch the fever?
Here are a few things that might help!

There are several projects, as you can see, that would be fun to make!
You can find these various free tutorials
 at Moda Bake Shop, Bustle and Sew, Lily Quilts blog, 
Just Sew Brighton, Makower UK, and at All About You.
The pillows on the sofa with the
banner I found at Daily Mail (UK) and are designs for sale by Jan Constantine.
The sweet lunch bag was one of the many Monica has been making and can be
found at Happy Zombie blog and is a tutorial over at
Pink Penguin.
So help yourself to a project and celebrate!
I always wear a hat when I am watching the horse races... I figure that I should
at least have a pillow or a lunch bag for the London Olympics!

5 friends stopped by to chat:

I love all the Brit lovelies that you've posted. I'm with you on this! I've bought my London fabric and am just about ready to start stitching. I love Happy Zombie's bag!
