Free to a good home

Sunday, June 22nd, 2014

My mojo seems to have gone missing at the moment, so despite the World Cup I still haven’t managed to sew or knit anything of consequence….work is busy and to be honest it feels like a productive day if I manage to come home and actually water my hanging baskets….(and feed the children!)

Quieter days are on the horizon though and I’m panning to compensate some overtime and just have some delicious me time in the next month or so. So watch this space.

In the meantime I discovered that I have somehow managed to acquire this lovely Japanese dress-making book twice – so it’s free to a good home – just send me a message if you would like it and I’ll draw a name out of the hat.


A word to the wise – this is a pattern book suitable for beginners, but in my humble opinion less suitable for those who tend to the curvaceous (like me). Think Japanese – think slim, flat….if that’s you, then give me a shout! It does have some lovely patterns though!

Happy Sunday,

    Well, since I am no longer slim nor flat I will pass on this. Lovely to see a post from you. Good that you can look forward to some down time in the near future, you deserve it!

    I hope you get some creative time soon. I’d love the book but my bumps and curves are telling me that it needs to go to someone more deserving!

    I was just thinking of you yesterday and thought and I thought I needed to write to you. I hope things are not to hectic and you are well and happy.

    Not much of a dressmaker myself, so I’ll pass on this. Too busy making my staple dress anyway!
