And the Winner of Pattern Pyramid and Sew Grateful Giveaway Is……

Oooooh, excitement has been palpable, here at Pattern Pyramid central.  As most of you know, this original idea was started by Karen at Did you Make That? and has been kept going by other wonderful sewing bloggers around the world starting their own Pyramid!  Here is the information about this Pattern Pyramid that I was lucky enough to win and to it, I also added a Sew Grateful Giveaway gift, consisting of a book titled “I Made It Myself“.

So, we began with printing out all the entrants, like so:Pattern Pyramid EntrantsThen, Kitty donned his track suit, and began warming up for the official officiating ceremony.Kitty in TracksuitKitty likes to pace himself and start out slow.Kitty Beginning Warm-UpKitty Beginning Warm-Up 2  Okay, VERY slow, but he did not want to get ahead of himself.  Before you know it, since Kitty is quite an impressive athlete, his warm-up turns into a frenzy of herculean feats.  So much so, that it is often difficult to capture his powerful and agile qualities on film.  Kitty tends to leap right out of camera view!!Kitty Warming Up

Kitty Jumping Right out of Camera View!!

Kitty approached from different vantage points, meticulously stalking the Torch, trying to mentally out-wit it.  Approaching From Differnt AnglesBegging the question, “Will Kitty actually pounce on Torch, thereby selecting a winning name???”  Kitty “tests” the Torch, sizing up his opponent’s strength and skill.  Testing the Torch Just when you thought it was all only a mind game, Kitty GOES FOR IT!!Kitty Goes For It 2  Kitty Goes For ItAMAZING!!!  Will these feats of unbelievable artistic athleticism result in a name being revealed??? Or will we have to do this all over again??  A tense yet exciting moment!  Let’s wait and see….A Name Comes DownAnd, a name comes down!!!!  Torn valiantly from the Olympic Torch by our very own brave Kitty.  Well done Sir!!!  Kitty investigates the winning name.Kitty Investigates the NameAnd the winner is Kaitui Kiwi!!!!The Winning NameCongratulations to Kaitui Kiwi from The Curious Kiwi.  We are all so Happy for you!!  And Pattern Pyramid gets to travel, yet again, to the area of the land down under, all the way to Wellington, New Zealand!  It is getting out its sunscreen now.  Kitty is Very Happy For You

Kitty is Very Happy For You!!

    Lordie, Girl, how do ever get any sewing done with such a fun kitty to keep you amused and amazed??? She should be in commercials earning her tuna casserole! The best name selection for the Pyramid Patterns yet! And to think all I did was ask Mr Mole to wear a blindfold/sleep mask and pick a name…how utterly boring! Nice to see the patterns travel the world!

    • Gjeometry says:

      Lol, Actually, Mrs. Mole, I was JUST saying exactly this, that now I can finally get back to my sewing! And, Kitty will give serious thought to that advice about commercials…..We’re both so pleased that you think it is the best name selection yet!! 🙂 How flattering!

      And, well, I’m sure Mr. Mole at least had some fun with picking a name. Even if it can’t compare to the talents of one rather famous Kitty!

    • Gjeometry says:

      Oh, yay, the winner!!!! Kitty is so glad you love him. Everybody does (or so he tells me to say).

      And, he would like to point out, that NO funny stuff went on in this draw, no tuna or belly-rub bribes were accepted, he keeps everything on the up and up! So, your name was torn down from the torch, fair and square.

      But, having said that, yes, he does love you too :).

      • Gjeometry says:

        Kitty would also like to add some quotes from Kaitui Kiwi’s email that she just sent us as he enjoys spreading around compliments that he receives. And he quotes:

        “Oh wow, that is AWESOME! Your kitty is so clever, what a neat way to chose a winner 🙂 Thank you so much!

        I am so excited, now I have to chose which pattern and I will be happy to add another pattern in to keep the fun sewing love going around the world.

        Have a great day xx
        Mel :)”

        You’re Welcome Mel!

    • Gjeometry says:

      Lol. SO Sorry Elle C!! Kitty did briefly debate your bribe…..but, alas, as the above post states, he is fair to the bone. He can’t help it, he has high moral fibre. But, we don’t know what pattern will be removed from the Pyramid, thereby giving you yet another possible chance to go for the vintage Butterick! Good Luck!! Kitty is crossing his paws for you 🙂

    Go Kitty…. he’s a super sewing hero!! He’s got so much talent and really loves getting involved in everything and anything to do with sewing. Catja you did a great fun job with this pattern pyramid and you deserve just as much credit as Kitty. Love it and it was super fun and entertaining. Congratulations to the winner and I’m sure she’ll be so grateful of Kitty’s super sewing hero talents… big Cheers for Kitty!

    • Gjeometry says:

      Lol, he totally IS a Super Sewing Hero!! Thanks for your compliments, Chris. Although not sure Kitty would agree that I deserve just as much credit as him…..Happy to entertain you, it was fun for Kitty and I as well!

    • Gjeometry says:

      Kitty would like to Thank You! And, yes, he is quite the athlete. He is part Bengal, which is very close to a wild cat, so he’s quite large and athletic. AND, he loves to entertain. 🙂

    Kitty for the win! He’s so playful and athletic, and it’s amazing how well you got him on the pictures. In mine my bosses turn up without a head or tail when they are playing and I try to take their picture.

    • Gjeometry says:

      Thank you! I know, it is SO difficult photographing pets! But, luckily, he’s quite a tolerant kitty, so I get “do-overs” for the pics that didn’t work out. And, hey, there is quite a few of kitty without a head,as well, as he jumps right out of camera view a lot of the time!

  4. Boomdeeadda says:

    Omgosh! that was was the most fun ever. I was laughing from the first frame. I LOVE all those action shoots and not easy to get with a camera BRAVO. The little jacket is a marvel…LOL I could never get that on Petals, she just would have none of it. The Olympic’s only wish they were so clever. Congratulations to the winner.

    • Gjeometry says:

      Yay! Glad you had fun viewing it! It is Kitty’s aim is to please and delight, for sure. And, his little jacket is actually pink velour with a hoodie and front zipper. Seriously!

    • Gjeometry says:

      Thanks! :). Yes, I have to say, even without Kitty to ‘help’, is pretty boring. And when you have Kitty, well, there’s simply no substitute. Glad you enjoyed it!

    • Gjeometry says:

      Lol, thanks Karen! Yes, he’s quite keen on that sweatshirt, pink velour with a hood and front zip. He also believes that he would have seriously spiced up the opening ceremonies in London. :). Thanks for starting such a good idea! It has given much joy to many people, and kitties.

    How on earth did you get your kitty to dress up, mine won’t have a bar of it! He is truly adorable – great and fun idea!!

  6. ooobop! says:

    I’ve got such a miserable day ahead and this has just turned my grousing face upside down! Absolutely nothing short of brilliant. What a stunning and clever kitty. Love it!

    • Gjeometry says:

      Hi Lizzie, thanks so much for stopping by! Kitty is delighted he could impress you :). It’s really not all that hard to be creative when you have a super sewing hero like Kitty to help. Glad you enjoyed it!
