a win and progress on having cosy toes


I was lucky enough to be a winner in the recent Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day and I got this gorgeous parcel of goodies this week from Staci at Vintage Fairytale. I can't believe how much there is and it's all beautiful and useful. I will happily be using it all and that bright pink tape measure and pen really make me smile! You can get all this and more in the Vintage Fairytale Etsy shop, she has some really cute Japanese prints and other lovely patterns too. Thank you so much Staci!


I was working at Patchfinders yesterday and was thrilled to see Meadow by Leah Duncan for Art Gallery Fabrics has arrived. I only managed to unwrap one bolt but I'm back in on Thursday so obviously I will be bringing some home then! These prints are even more vivid and beautiful in real life and I can't wait to use them.


I'm currently working on finishing up these slippers using Ayumi's brilliant pattern from Stitch Magazine (Summer 2011). You can get a PDF of the pattern here. It feels so so good to be working on something just for me and my cold toes are going to love being in their own little quilt!

oohh and I'm thinking about bringing the Fugly Fabric Party back because it's been TOO long! Anyone up for another round of Fugly swaps and giveaways??

  2. I was so pleased when I saw you had won. Excellent and well deserved prize. Meanwhile, working in a fabric shop must be a two edged sword - wanting to have it all for yourself.
