A Stitcher’s Dream

9 Dec

Well I never, ever, never ever ever thought I’d be writing this.

I expect most of you have heard of Tilly and the Buttons. If you haven’t, shame on you! Go read her blog now. I’ll wait for you to return 🙂



Now we all know what’s going on; Tilly recently hosted a Stitcher’s Dream giveaway on her blog. If you didn’t follow the link (sometimes moving the mouse is haaard) then the giveaway included lots of lovely things such as fabric, gift vouchers and patterns from Backstitch, Britex Fabrics, Dragonfly Fabrics, Fabric Godmother, Fabric HQ, Minerva Crafts, Miss Tilly’s Fabric Emporium, My Fabric Place, Patterns from the Past, Sewbox, So Vintage Patterns and Tilly herself. There was even this adorable sewing box from Elephant in My Handbag




And guess who won?




Oh, it’s me by the way if you haven’t guessed.


I have no idea what I’m going to do with all these things. I’ve been looking at all the websites but I’m so indecisive!

There’s this

and this.

Oh and this lovely Liberty fabric. Yum.

And this too (though I’m not sure if a dress would be too much….).

I have spotted this dragon fabric. I might go with it.

However, I do know exactly what I’ll be making my first Miette and my first Mathilde from and since Tilly’s so efficient and has sent me the patterns already I might get cracking right now.

      Congratulations! I have made the mathilde blouse, it is lovely but I took some out of the sleeves because it was a bit too blousy for me. Good Luck. Jo x
