"I live in a stone cottage in the beautiful Somerset countryside. I love my home but there isn't enough room to accommodate all the things I have bought/collected over the years and keep buying. To keep my home tidy and clutter free and to make room for new arrivals, I have a regular clear out. Instead of using a well know online auction site or dress agency, I have created this blog to sell some of my own personal items.I will be selling: Clothing, accessories, textiles, books, magazines, home wares, jewellery and more... (Modern, old, used & new)
Isabelle generously offered a choice of two books as a giveaway prize, the one I picked was...
...The Liberty Book Of Home Sewing.
It's a beautifully presented book, packed full of some rather nice household items to sew. I especially like the fabrics used for the quilt above.
This cushion cover looked unusual and very effective...
...as did this one.
And I've always had a hankering for a decent bean bag. I did get a bean bag one Christmas when I was in my early teens and I was delighted, till I sat on it and realised it was filled with blobby mishapen polystyrene packing lumps and not the nice slidey "beans" I was expecting - like the ones you can see here in my favourite bean bag film scene(!)
Thank you, Isabelle, for a wonderful prize. I am enjoying the book very much and may even be tempted to renew my aquaintance with my sewing machine (with whom I parted on bad terms rather a long time ago).
