Much More Than A Pencil Case......


A couple of nights ago, I was sat in my leather chair, quietly reading my blogs when I jumped up with glee, did a little song, danced a little jig. Poor Eldest Bea almost died with fright, luckily she had just finished her could have been messy!
I've won, I've won....Jenny's giveaway.....I've won! Eldest Bea showed the mildest of excitement, as only a pre-teen can.
What have you won mum, she asked....A pencil case, I exclaimed, a pencil case....made by the lovely Jenny I cried! The very mild excitement she had on her face, well it left!
Oh, but it was Much More Than A Pencil case, in fact it wasn't a pencil case at all, unless it was a pencil case for a giant! It was much bigger than I was expecting!
How can someone you've never met, know what would makes you dance? Yes, another little jig around my room as I opened my parcel. This one only witnessed by the cat!
Little bit of vintage fabric....
Another bit of vintage fabric......
Vintage these colours!
Some snippets of 1950s glamour.....
And 1970s pattern!
It feels like Christmas has arrived early, this will look fab on my lampshade Christmas tree!
Lisa over at Bobo Bun also won, aren't we lucky Lisa! If you get chance, check out Jenny's blog, The will be in for a treat! If you think I'm bonkers about colour and pattern......
Thank you everyone for your sewing advice. I think I'll get Clarice serviced, she how she sews afterwards, and maybe look for an evening class next year, boost my confidence! In the meantime a little crochet and hand sewing will suffice!
Right, off to find something precious to keep in my new bag!
Bye For Now,
Ada :) xxx
