Hi everyone. How exciting – did you know I was the lucky Pattern Pyramid Winner of the batch of yummalicius patterns hosted by SewBusyLizzy? Well you do now!
Not only did I receive a massive wedge of sewing patterns, Lizzy also sent me the cutest gift – she knows me so well – wrapped up in polka dots – gigantes rik rack & some pretty lace as well as a sweet notebook to keep track of all my rambling ideas. Perfect- thank you so much 🙂
I will now regale you pictorially with photos showing what was in this particular haul. I have also taken the opportunity to add a few of my own to boost it.
Before i do that, let’s recap. remember this is the brainchild of Karen at Didyoumakethat & here are the rules (lifted from the original post ) to remind you:
THE SMALL PRINT
- No way am I going through 30 patterns, ensuring that every pattern piece is there. This is pot luck!
- Please don’t email me for specifics on these patterns. Take your chance!
- Your selection of patterns will be picked at random, though I do promise to attempt a good variety of makes. Please don’t contact me asking for specific patterns.
- If you’re a winner, I would love it if you could make a small contribution to The Brooke. This is a charity close to the heart of Catherine, who so generously provided these patterns.
All Karen asks of participants is to engage in a timely fashion, launching their own giveaways soon after receiving a parcel. you must also be happy to post patterns worldwide – we really want to spread the love!
And there’s something about the package that sends my cat nearly as crazy as me!!! He can’t get enough of it!! Is there catnip in there too? X
So here are some shots of the loot…..
Some real goodies in here, even the 80s and 90s ones have some very redeemable features and are useable if you get past the illustrations!
Which would you choose if you won? Seriously the 60s and 70s ones are awesome!!
I couldn’t resist adding a Few of my own…. Yes that is a 1940s pattern….Will this pyramid ever run out of steam?!
And this is the one I’m keeping for me :-). I am SO dreaming of spring/ summer dress sewing already!
This giveaway ends on Sunday 20th january at midnight gmt. (am the next day I will pick one lucky reader (worldwide) All you have to do is to leave a comment (by the way, don’t worry if it doesn’t appear – I have to manually de-spam comments if you haven’t commented recently & if I am not able to get to my computer that might take a little while)
