A large parcel awaited me today when I returned from the hairdressers… TJ from The Perfect Nose who had initiated the” one cool thing / one strange thing swap” had sent me more stuff!! So that’s two extra piles of fabric for me to play with! YAY! So what was in it?? Some blue stretch silk satin.. drooooool, some John Kaldor print in shades of blue and green and a blue and white chiffon print. That was just the fabric. Then there is a Burda pattern, a Patrones magazine, a cute book mark, a cool button and a lovely card with a looong letter. Thank you TJ, they are all lovely, and I cannot wait to make something from the silk. I’m feeling a cowl top….
Isn’t it fab when sewing goodies arrive in the post? It’s exciting when something you’ve ordered appears in the posite’s hand, but when it’s something you’ve been waiting for, and don’t even know what’s in there, it’s even better! I participated in TJ‘s One cool thing / One strange thing swap this month and my randomly selected sender of fabric goodness was Jeyco, although I didn’t know who’d I’d got until the stuff arrived! So the parcel with Japanese stamps on was squealed over – big time!!
Here’s what was inside:
This is what Jeyco thought was the coolest item in the package, and I have to agree with her, although I thought the sewing pattern was a pretty close second and the silk, and the cottons…. So what to do with all this stuff??? That green gingham is going to find its way into a jacket, I was thinking of a grey linen jacket, and to have that silk to line it would be loverly!
The Libertys, I thought the blue would line a cropped navy linen jacket I have on the go at the moment, and the turquoise and beige is going to be a blouse/top. It’s so pretty! I stood no chance with this mad print, the moment Daughter No 2 saw it she wanted it!! I’m feeling a 60′s dress…. Such excitement over the post!
Now to find the time.. there wasn’t any of that in the parcel! Thank you so much TJ for organising this little swap, and Jeyco for sending me all cool stuff!
