Wow I won the PR Challenge Contest: One Pattern Wardrobe

I am thrilled and quite humbled that I won the PR Challenge Contest: One Pattern Wardrobe with an astonishing 248 votes, despite my indoor flash with no makeup photos.
I really got a buzz out of doing the contest and am enjoying wearing my pieces.
I appreciate each and every vote, and that people took the trouble to click for me - THANK YOU!
Hey and guess what there is apparently even a prize of One Online Sewing Class on PatternReview.com which will be a great opportunity for me to learn some new technique at some point.
I've been having quite a tough time recently so this is a really lovely thing to have happened for me.
The first thing I knew of it was an email this morning from Jenni letting me know (she had been on PR to see if the contest had finished) so that was a nice start to the week.

It couldn't have happened to a nicer or more deserving person. Your wardrobe is lovely and I am hoping to see some of it later this week. Hint, hint.
I am particularly pleased that the win came at such a difficult time for you and provided some much needed cheer.
Thinking of you.

Congratulations!!! Any idea which class you're going to choose? I really enjoyed the Underlining class I took after winning the lingerie contest, and I learned SO much from it even though I couldn't attend any of the chats (they were all at very Europe-unfriendly times).
