I'm supposed to be cleaning out my sewing area in preparation for our future move. Let's just say it isn't going really well? Every time I unearth something I haven't seen in a while it gets me excited to make something! So now I have five or six projects cut out, sitting on the table.
I decided in order to expedite the process and be sure I don't keep all of this stuff for myself I'm going to do a giveaway-a-day. It sounds a little overwhelming, but I think if I set it all up weekly then maybe it'll go smoothly?
Most of the giveaways will be for vintage patterns, as I'm overflowing with them. Sometimes I'll throw a cut of fabric in the mix, or maybe some notions I need to thin out (I might have thirty zippers? Is that too many?).
If you're a quilter or craft-sew-er, don't be dismayed! I have hundreds of yards of quilting cottons in super cool prints so I'll probably de-stash a little there, too. I can see a cut of Heather Ross' blue dogs on the list. And orange ones.
If it's a pattern, my hope is that all the pieces are there even if it's been cut. I can't guarantee that, though! And I'll try to choose patterns that are of a size most women can work with (34-36-38).
If there's a style of pattern you're dying for, feel free to email me at heathertyfeatherty at gmail dot com and I'll search my stash. I do have two copies of a TO DIE FOR vintage Vogue designer pattern that will probably be the coup de gras, if you know what I mean.
For the inaugural giveaway, I present to you...
McCall's 4532 - Size 18 / Bust 38 - circa early sixties?
Marge, do you think this necklace is flattering on me?
Why yes, Susan, I do. And I just love your new gloves.
Oh, thank you. Walter bought them for me on holiday last
Hmm, I'm going to have to have a talk with Harold. Maybe if I
make his favorite pot roast tonight...

Sorry for the short notice on today's giveaway, the idea just came to me late this morning on a conference call!
OK, thanks ladies, and check back tomorrow for the next giveaway!
