Christmas! Well, not quite, but as good …

Just a quick update from me, this week has turned out to be a tad manic.

As you might have seen, I left my previous work place after my contract had run out, and have now started a new job, which is slightly different from what I did before, but still working with video games. I’ll give you some more at a later point, if you’re interested.

Today, however, was an early Christmas for me.

Maybe you remember the swap the lovely Kerri from Kestrel finds and makes organized in summer? I was paired with Silvia, and it soon turned out that we’re getting on like a house on fire.

So we stayed loosely in contact, and recently she offered to go pattern shopping for me. Now, for you in the U.S., this might sound weird, but we don’t have JoAnn’s. More specifically, we don’t have 99p pattern sales. Best offers over here are usually 50% off, which still sets you back ~5 GBP per pattern. Of course I was all over it!

And today, her tightly stuffed envelope arrived. This is what I got:


So, if you want to judge me for stuffing a couple of costumes and a PJ in there, go ahead 😛 All I say is – 99p!!

Read you next week, have a lovely weekend!

Love all things vintage, especially knitting from the victorian era through to the swinging twenties.
