A very quick post!

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it! I’m exhausted after a very long day of Santa presents, two family meals, breakfast with friends, lots of children and warm weather!

Sorry it’s a tad late but I threw everybody’s name into a spreadsheet and then used the random number generator at – I would have documented this via images but it’s Christmas and I’m just soooooo tired! And tomorrow, depending on the weather, it’s anoth long day of cricket in the sun etc. I need to sleep – or rather slip into a temporary coma.

So the winner of the Pattern Pyramid is…


I will be keeping the Jiffy pattern, I’ve worn it three times this week, including this afternoon. I can’t bear to part with it. So I’m throwing TWO patterns into the mix as I feel bad… although that little pattern went unremarked until my round. My husband thinks its just the magical lighthouse photo, unusual fabric and remarked that if I took of the belt you would all realise it’s just a little sack.

I got sewing goodies today – I will share as soon as Christmas madness ends!



  1. Merry Christmas to you too! Can’t wait to see all the sewing goodies you got for Christmas!!! BTW, your lunch Christmas Cambie is sooooooooo fabulous…love the waistband!

  2. Happy new year! I was given a few vintage patterns awhile ago (just found them again in a sewing room clean up!) There’s another Jiffy dress pattern and a few others (dresses and blouses), all are sz14 / 34″ bust. If you’d like them please email me at amber_stone (at) bigpond (dot) com and I’ll post them over otherwise they are going to the op shop!

  3. Hello! I came to your blog today through GingerMakes…and I think I’m in love! I’ve already combed a bit through your backlog- I can see I’m going to have fun hanging around here! 🙂
