A little something lovely
Sometimes in life it is the little things that can make us the happiest. The smallest gesture, a quick bright smile.
And, because I know y’all are going to ask. Yup! That is a vintage pewter brogue pin cushion – a most excellent Christmas gift from my Dad!
When I was working (my fingers to the bone – I shall add for dramatic effect!) getting ready for The Vilene Sewing Club workshops Sewing for Pleasure, my darling friends over at DotComGiftShop decided to get involved and make my life (and that of those attending the workshops!) just a little bit sweeter! Everyone who attended the workshops at the NEC got to take home a little goodie bag jam packed with handy user guides for getting the most from the Vilene range, and a selection of samples to try out for themselves at home – what could be better than that? Well, I might not be able to better it, but I think that the cherry on the top might come in the form of an itty-bitty vintage-style sewing kit!
