I Win Again ...

This really is proof that it pays to complete those fill in forms at the back of magazines for the giveaways.  I'm delighted to have a copy of this book from Sewing World.  I was hoping that out of all the prizes on offer, this would be the one I won - and I did!


As you can see, I have trouble taking a decent photo these days ....

Boutique Bags is a collection of 19 projects from which 76 bags can be made.  It's written by best selling pattern maker Sue Kim and published by Stash Books.  I like the Violet Bag and this will be the first one I tackle.  I'm thinking that a bag will be a nice, small project to get back into sewing again.



I've also entered the pattern swap over at The Monthly Stitch and am looking forward to seeing what my swap partner will choose for me - I'd forgotten how exciting things like international pattern swaps can be!  This is for indie pattern month in June ...
