And the Winner is …… Patrones Giveaway Winner!

Hola, mis amigas y hermanas costureras,
Quiero anunciar la ganadora del premio del sorteo de la revista Patrones. Gracias a todas las que comentaron en mi blog. Yo quisiera darles una revista a cada una, pero, solo tengo una edición.


Para seleccionar la ganadora, puse todos los nombres en mi mágico cesto de coser, y escogí un boleto al azar.


¡Felicidades a Maryall!


El blog de Maryall is “Handmade by Maryall”, originalmente en Italiano pero comenzó a escribir en Ingles este año. Me inspiro a escribir este mensaje en Español.  Me encanta su blog porque describe la costura y cocina, cuáles son también mis intereses.

Maryall, te mandaré un email. Por favor di me tu dirección para mandarte esta edición especial. Si haces algo de la revista, estoy muy curioso de ver a tu bonita creación.  Tendrás que usar tus competencias de coser porque la revista no tiene direcciones meticulosas.

¡Gracias de nuevo a todas y que sigamos cosiendo feliz!


The winner of the Patrones giveaway is Maryall from Handmade by Maryall! Her blog is in Italian but she just started blogging in English this year as a New Year’s resolution. I love her blog because she writes about cooking and crafting, my interests too!

After reading Maryall’s blog, I was inspired to write this blog post in Spanish, the language of the Patrones magazine. I am just learning Spanish so please forgive me if there are any errors. Writing in another language is much harder than reading another language! I admire the bilingual blogs that are out there. I won’t translate my entire text above because this will hopefully give all the monolingual people out there a challenge.

Maryall, I will contact you by e-mail. Please send me your address so I can send you the giveaway package.

Thanks to all the entered the giveaway and happy sewing!

    Congrats to the winner! And, I loved reading your post as I’m trying to become fluent in Spanish. 🙂

  2. Me encanta que escribiste en espanol. Necesito mas oportubnidades de practicar. Y obviamente necesito aprender como escribir los acentos & tildas con el teclado.

      Thanks! I think Spanish (as well as the other romance languages) is charming and artistic to see and hear. I have great respect for those that are fluent in multiple languages.

  3. Yay a new blog – lovely. Congrats to the winner too.

    Hi, Javie, and thank you again for this giveaway! I had the opportunity of looking at patrones online, but I have never had it in my hands until now! I can’t wait to read it! 🙂
    Your Spanish is great! Thanks for your kind words abot my blog! 🙂 And yes, keep blogging in Spanish, too, as a lot of sewists out there might not speak English, and you would help them!
    I’ll share a little secret here with you – you won’t find this on my blog 😉 – I blog in a foreign language, as I am neither Italian, nor English, but… Romanian!! 😀 I also love foreign languages, and learning a new language is so rewarding! It helps me meet new and great people, like you!

      Hi Maryall! Now I am really surprised and impressed- blogging in 2 foreign languages! Wow! 🙂 I’m sure you are fluent in Spanish too! I hope you enjoy the Patrones. And I look forward to reading about your future artistic creations!
