I've recently been lucky enough to win two blog giveaways! The first was from Tasha at By gum, by golly! and was sponsored by BombshellShocked on etsy.

Vintage sewing and knitting books, plus a cute Barbie card from Tasha! These will prove really helpful with construction when I'm working with vintage sewing patterns, and I hope to learn to knit at some point. In the meantime, Mum, get your needles at the ready! Hehe!

The next giveaway was from the lovely LandGirl1980's film and literary blog, LandGirl's Library.

Fabulous wartime-themed goodies! I can't wait to get viewing and reading these.

Thank you so much to both ladies, I really appreciate the prizes and feel so lucky to have won two giveaways!

Plus... my fabrics have arrived from the USA! Thanks to some creative customs labelling I also managed to dodge any exorbitant charges, so keep a eye out for my dressmaking adventures over the next few weeks!
