I have been absolutely spoilt lately by my friend Bec. A few weeks ago she gave me some vintage patterns and this wonderful book . I had heard of it referred to as 'the sewing bible' and looked at a few copies on ebay before, but the postage was always such a killer as it is such an enormous book. It is jammed packed full of wonderful info like how to correctly attach ruffles and collars and even descriptions of all sorts of fabrics and their uses. I have been spending my evenings pouring over the pages and planning new projects that I would never have dared tackle before. Ahhhh, sewing heaven!
And then today I found the postman had delivered a big fat package full of more vintage patterns. There is everything from womens wear to childrens wear and even softies! It is amazing to have friends that not only know how to pick the perfect gift but take the time and effort to think of you for no special reason at all, just because they are your friends. Thank you Bec, you made my day.
And lastly a little sneak peek at some things I have been working on lately. Hopefully they will be all finished this weekend and in the shop early next week.
