Why you ask? Because I won a giveaway over here on Elaine's blog and I have only just got around to taking a photo and blogging about it. I was the lucky winner of 2 charm packs and some sewing pins, some quilt pins, and a Clover quick un-pick.
I was so excited to win! Charm packs are something I have never bought or used before. I am as yet unsure what I will use them for, mainly because I just like to look at them all the time lol
I also went op-shopping yesterday and today and picked up some old patterns and books. A selection of them are below. Some of the patterns I may not use, but they were just too gorgeous to leave behind!
I saw this book and was intrigued by the cover, but when I flicked through and saw the picture below, I knew it couldn't stay there. It is from 1971.
And this one, purely for the picture on the front. No idea how old it is.
I love the pattern on the left, but I know I will never use it (well I don't think so anyways lol) And the pattern on the right is just adorable, hopefully something I can make for my DD sometime in the future.
I have also been on the lookout for a skort pattern to use as a base for making for school for my DD. Otto has one but it is as yet, too big. I realised that in my op-shopping I have managed to pick up two mags with the pattern I am after. One that will fit now, and one for when she is a little bigger.
