Thank you!

Thank you to all of you who commented on my post from yesterday. Where possible I will try to reply directly to you. But I don't think I can reply to Joni, so just wanted to say thank you. I am also hoping to get back to playgroup next year with my daughter (who currently has no activities of her own or any friends to call her own).

Now, I ordered a bundle of patterns from the Vogue/McCalls/Butterick group a couple of weeks ago. About a week earlier I had been to Spotlight and paid around $40 for 2 patterns. I know, I am an idiot!! When I saw the prices on the US website, and the current exchange rate, I couldn't resist. Despite the fact that I paid $25 for postage (now what a rip off is that!), I still managed to have 7 Vogue and McCalls patterns delivered for $50. However, silly "never-even-been-bleached-blonde" me accidentally ordered 2 of the exact same pattern. So, I will give one away.



It is a bit specific though..... the pattern is Vogue 1120, but in the larger size range (14-22). Also, since I have already paid a heap in postage to get it here, I might just make it a local (Australian giveaway). I will keep this one open until Friday night. And I guess just to keep things separate, any entries for this giveaway won't be entered in the bigger/destash giveaway (just in case the same person were to win both - I would prefer to spread the love). Of course, everyone is welcome to enter both separately.

So to enter this giveaway, just leave a comment on this post! Good luck!

Hi Belinda, I just saw your post from yesterday and wanted you to know you are not alone. Some weeks, like this week, we have so many play dates and other activites planned and I don't know how we fit it all in, then other weeks there is nothing and I feel quite lonely too. Cass is right, once James is at school there is always an opportunity to have a chat to other school mums and organise coffee etc. Love the dress pattern and it could motivate me to make some work dresses for next year.

Hey Belinda,

Good to hear a small parcel of fun has arrived - hopefully it lifts your spirits. Remember all things will pass, eventually something will come up and completely consume all of your time and evergy again and you won't know what to do with yourself.

Well I didn't leave a comment yesterday but spoke to you instead, you know you are such a special friend.

And by the way, Layla most certainly has a friend of her own, Eden adores Layla!

And obviously I am not hoping to win the pattern, ha ha ha! I am probably the un-crafty friend you have...

Have you ever looked at Sewingpatterns.com? They're postage rates are much friendlier :)

Belinda - do you sell those gorgeous dresses that you have up for auction? Just wondered if you did in other colours?
Thanks Caroline
