  33. I am so happy for you, Oona! I love your blog and I've loved watching you go through this challenge. Every week when I would go to Project Sewn to vote, I'd think, "Okay, be open, vote for someone other than Oona," and then I'd end up voting for you because I liked your project the bestest. Which is not to say I didn't love all the other ladies' project - WOW, what a group!
