Thankyou Andi, it's gorgeous!


Oh Andi, thankyou!

I was lucky enough to win the giveaway at Andi's English Attic
and found the daintiest-wrapped parcel waiting in my letterbox.

Andi had even included a cute little vintage chick embroidery,
and yes you're quite right, it's "me to a tee"!

Two beautiful Fat Quarters of patchwork fabric
printed in a limited edition for the
and a pewter thimble, reproduced from
a commemorative design marking Queen Victoria's marriage.
I don't have a good thimble, so this is destined for my sewing box.

I tried patchwork only once;
it looked like a Crazy Quilt even though I'd aimed for squares,
but I'll make very good use of the cottons as background
fabric for my ebay photos- the colours are just perfect.


A Victorian themed card with sweet sentiments-
thankyou so much, I love it all!


ps- I'll be posting details of my own
Very Vintage Giveaway later this week!!

pps- just so you can see how well the fabric works
I'm listing some buttons on ebay tonight
and it made an ideal Victorian background!
