I won!!!!

Hooray! How exciting! The girl who never wins anything, won a giveaway during Sew Grateful Week!

The lovely Cation had several things to give away during the week, and I was lucky enough to win this!

It is very 80's I know, which is not my usual style at all, but I love the bias stripe version, and can really see this as a casual summer dress (ideally on a hot, sunny beach, but in my case it's most likely to be Portobello instead...), with some white canvas Converse, maybe?

But look at what else she sent!

The pattern, a lovely Thank You card (just look at that illustration on the front!) and a vintage pack of seam binding in a gorgeous willow green colour.
3 yards for 19 cents!
Green is my favourite colour (hence my blog name!), and I recently discovered the joy of seam binding, but I'm not sure I actually ever want to use it - the packaging is just too fabulous!

And look inside the card...
The halogen lights in our living room make it physically impossible to NOT cast a shadow!

... a little drawing of Walnut, Cation's cat! How cute? Small boy was particularly taken with this!

I am chuffed to bits! Thanks, Cation! x

  1. Well done! I can totally see how that pattern could become a cool summer dress. Actually I think I have something similar in my stash - you may just have inspired me to go and find it...


I love to hear from you!
