As promised a giveaway. A giveaway to say "thank you," faithful followers. To celebrate 100 followers I thought a giveaway was in order. Since it took me a few days to get it together there are now 112 followers. So I have included 12 things. I need to hurry and post this before there is 113. Things around here are coming up pink, so I decided to pay homage to that and offer a pink giveaway.
Included in this bonanza of pink is:
Three skeins of soft pink floss.
Two colors of silk ribbon
One card of antique, mother of pearl buttons.
Two and half yards of luscious silk satin ribbon. Warning, Warning: The keeper of your check book will not be happy that you discovered this awesome stuff. You will be reluctant to return to the old stand by Offray.
Two yards of whipstitch piping in a soft baby pink.
One spool each of DMC 50 weight sewing thread and Madeira Cotona 80 weight thread.
Five yards of eye popping hot pink polka dot grosgrain ribbon. So fun for hairbows.
And my favorite construction book, Precise and Professional by Lyn Weeks. My copy has dozens of post it page flags. It is my go to book. I must confess that there is some water damage to this book. I originally bought this copy as a gift for my daughter while I was in Lafayette. On the trip home, I misguidedly thought; "I will keep this in my carry on so nothing happens to it." Well duh, don't carry a drink in your bag with the book when you are trying to board. Her sister was dispatched post haste to buy the last copy available at this shop so I could give it to her for Christmas. You will benefit from my lack of brain power that day.
This book is still very usable and is out of print, so it is very difficult to find. I LOVE this book. I hope you don't mind some crinkly pages, but all of the pages are still clear and none of the print or diagrams were harmed. The technique I use for tee tiny French seams is in here, for piping, tucks and many other techniques.
