Let me just start this by saying I am one rather unlucky person when it comes to things and I have never won anything in my life (not even those crane games). But I recently entered a giveaway over at Blaze 'n' Crochet and won. *Gasp* Shana has tons of amazing photos on her blog and she has a horse!  

On another note, I was all geared up to get some sewing done for me this past weekend during the football games and had all the patterns and fabric pulled and I had three people call asking about alterations. Now I don't mind alterations because it means I get paid, but I want to make something for me. So today you get pictures of the fabric and patterns.
They really are the same color, just different textures.
Black with blue contrast. Hey look! Cat fur!
Navy blue and white stripe

I have got to find a better place to take pictures, maybe outside, so the colors look like they should. Oh well, first I would have to clean off the porch, it's rather messy at the moment. You know, leaves, some dead plants in pots, plants outgrowing their pots...yeah. There is also a white with light blue stripes that I want to use for the last pattern, but I can't seem to find it at the moment.

There are also a few of my grandmother's dresses that I have and love and want to remake in different material so I need to take a pattern from them. I really think clothing-wise I was born in the wrong time. The clothing now is blah (a technical term) and I can't stand wearing most of it. My new idea is that we should all dress in whatever time period looks best on us. So you might see someone walking down the street in victorian garb while someone else is in 50's clothing is having a conversation with someone wearing a toga. Could be fun. Sorry for the rambling, I'm going to post before this gets and more crazy.


  1. Hi! I just dropped in from Shana's blog to say congratulations! That is very exciting that you won the birthday surprise! I hope you enjoy. Please post photos of the dresses when you have them done - I love to sew!

  2. I love the patterns you have here. I love fabrics too lol as I do sewing and crocheting. I am so happy you won and I think you will like the stuff in the bag.
