Vintage Sewing Things

Kris from Tag Along Teddies was showing us her lovely vintage finds recently so I just thought I'd be a copycat and show you mine . Actually the main reason that I can't show you any of my recent craftiness as it's either a PIF or a magazine project but I promise I have been very crafty .

My little Vulcan sewing machine I've had for a long time and I probably picked it up at a garage sale . The fold out box is very , very old and belonged to my husbands auntie .

The only other really old sewing things I have are my hands and what a boring photo they would be .

I'm feeling a bit sheepish !

I really am . School holidays are still happening here , I have assignments to be done for Tech and I have project deadlines looming .

So what would any sensible well adjusted person do ?
Make a sheep of course !

Sometimes I feel like doing something I want to do instead of doing stuff I have to do .

I received a lovely parcel from Caroline at Patchwork Harmony in the UK . It contained a book that I am very interested in reading and one of her beautiful trademark hearts . Thankyou so much Caroline I will let you know when I've read the book I'm looking forward to it . Carolines blog is beautiful and I love visiting her .

Granny Square Overkill !

I've seen a bit of crochet as I've been skipping around blogland .

There has been a bit of "granny squares" and some lovely delicate crochet around .

Here is my not so little contribution , it is huge ! It covers totally my queen size bed and actually drags on the floor on both sides .

I have worked on this treasure since I was a teenager and carried it around the country .

Why did I not know when to STOP !

And why oh why did I join the squares in black ?

Here's the girl one !

Yes this design may come as a bit of a surprise to you , it certainly surprised my daughter .

My girl has been playing netball for a couple of years now so I think she deserved a stitchery based on her .

My son has also finished playing soccer after 7 years , it won't be long before I feature his new sport .

The pattern itself for "Netball Star" is not quite finished but if you like you may pre-order and wholesale enquiries are also welcome .

Where's the girl one ?

My daughter was asking this as I was packing my "Soccer Star" patterns . This stitchery pattern always does really well at this time of year when the kids are signing up for soccer .

So she keeps asking "Where's the girl one ?"

Stay tuned the "girl one " will be here any day now !

I'm a little eggcited !

Went into GoLo yesterday ... just for a look mind you and found these eggs ." Ooh "I said" how pretty "! Being the frugal girl I am I thought I'd check the price first and asked a very helpful assistant (n0t) "Those are only 50c a bag , no one wants that sort of stuff they just want chocolate !"

Now if I have the choice between chocolate and something really sweet that will also add more clutter to my home give me the clutter anytime !

Have an eggcellant Easter I'm off to rearrange more Eastery clutter !

Berta Ruck knows who the winner is !

Berta doesn't really know who the winner is , sorry about that ...... It's just that I found this book at the Vinnies with a great title , fantastic cover and then I read the authors name , Berta Ruck!

Do you think that's really funny or is it just me ?

I do have a winner for my "Flutterby" stitchery pattern though .

You won't believe this I've just looked inside the book and Berta Ruck dedicated this book to her sister , guess what her name is , Hester Agnes Onions !

I should probably tell you who is the winner of my giveaway.... the winner is Joy from Joypatch . I am just so glad she doesn't have an unusual name . Joy if you could please email me your address I will have your pattern fluttering off to you .

Thanks to all who entered your feedback is appreciated .

If you would like to buy a copy of my "Flutterby" pattern contact me by email .

If you would like your craft store to stock my patterns wholesale enquiries are welcome .

I'm off now to see how else Berta Ruck can amuse me .
