It's a while since I last joined Sunday Stash and this time I have to thank two friends. First I have to thank a friend (a colleague) who has recently bought a new house. The house was completely empty a part from two boxes in the attic. One box was full of mouldy confetti (almond sweets you give for weddings and special occasions in Italy) which he threw away, of course. In the other box he found a very tidy collection of dressmaking patterns.
He kindly thought of giving them to me, knowing I have a passion for sewing (and he doesn't!) and seeing how well they had been kept. Thank you very much for thinking of me!
So now I am the lucky new owner of these patterns, that seem to all date back to 1956. I've taken it as a hint that I really have to try sewing clothes. That little voice that keeps telling me to try is getting louder and louder!
I would also like to thank my friend Mara at Secretly Stitching who is absolutely unbeatable at calculating the best offers and ways of reducing shipping costs. I do try to work out how she does it but in the end she's so good at it I put myself totally in her hands! I am always in awe of how every time she manages to think of a new way for saving money for us far away European residents trying to buy fabric from the States or Canada.
Mara's done it again. I love the low volume fabric she's sent me through a special offer. I can't wait to start using them.
She even sent me two lovely charms as a present for my Passport fabric. How cool is that?! Thank you Mara!
Linking up with Sunday Stash over at the one and only Molli Sparkles' with all my "low volume" photos!
