How lucky am I !!

Back at the beginning of May, Sandra from The Surley Seamstress had a Double Barrel Giveaway and I couldn’t believe my luck when I found out I had won the #2 Vintage for Grown Ups which arrived in the mail last week.

The pack contained:
• Burda magazine January 1975
• Butterick dress pattern, undated size 12 bust 87cm
• About 2 metres of retro print polyester satin

The Burda magazine was printed in West Germany but has an English supplement so the pattern instructions are in English.  There is an interesting trench coat pattern as well as some interesting skirts and dresses.  The the retro print polyester satin is brown and lemon and it would be wonderful lining for my rain coat.

Then Maria and I attended the Knitwit’s Seasonal Fabric Showing at Artarmon and the following fabrics found their way to my home last week,

Now to figure out how I am going to be home when it is not raining so I can get all this pre-washed and ready to play with.

I’ m a Winner

Two posts in 2 days, but I just had to show you what I received today in the mail.

Gay over at AND SEW IT SEAMS had a Give-Away for her 100th blog and look what arrived today:

# The latest Threads magazine.

# A Nicole Mallalieu Day Bag Pattern which I can’t wait to try.

# A Project Runway Brand Spanking New Sewing Case.

# 2 pkts quality interfacing – one is a woven lightweight the other a lovely Soft Lite Weft, definately not the SheerWeft I have been using.

# 1 pkt Jeans needles – size 80 – these will come in handy after my class at the Convention.

# and the cutest PINK tape measure in a cute little tin.

I’m going to have fun tonight playing with my new goodies.

Thank you Gay for such a wonderful treat.
