Give Away Week

So this week I am giving away all sorts of goodies books, fabric, patterns, notions, vintage clothing all because I want to say "THANKYOU"! My blog is coming to it's first year and it has only been as exciting and interesting as the people who comment and give me so much encouragement and support.

   I thought I would share with you how I became a blogger and my journey into dressmaking.

Here is my wedding day 1st July 2010, we had  a 1940 dress code and a pick nic and dance in our village hall.

When looking for the right outfit I realised that so many women of this time made their own clothes, even into the 70 when my mum was making my clothes, why are we not doing this anymore?

Then to make that giant snow ball rolling I found Mena  at Sew weekly . At this time Mena was making on her own an outfit a week, so inspired by this I started sometime later I have to confess to make my own clothes. This in turn has sparked a real new passion for all crafts that I had put to one side for a long time.

So today I would like to offer  this book :

This is a lovely book that has inspireed many of the presents I have made over the last few years.

To be in for a chance you have to be a follower of my blog. Please leave a comment and a email address.I will post to anywhere in the world. Winners will be announced on Sunday. Best of luck. x x x
