A Quick Hello and Giveaway

So things have been very hectic around here as you may or may not have noticed in my lack of posts. To summarize: I got a bicycle for my birthday on the 5th, spent a week as a camp counselor before coming home sick with lyme, seeing my friends leave home for their first jobs and doing an unusual amount of knitting (which I will write about later).
Also, I've been bad again and bought 4 new patterns and these gorgeous shoes (mine are in black). If you want a pair, you'd best get on it, they're "Oriole" by Sofft. The cranberry and navy color are impossible to find already and the black is selling out everywhere. I was blessed in finding a pair in my size on Ebay for $40 but they usually run $80-105.

But on to more interesting things. I have FINALLY gotten all six of my reproduction vintage veil cap patterns set up in my Etsy store, Vintage Stitches. In celebration I am giving one away to one lucky reader! All you have to do is leave a comment below saying which one you would pick. I'll pick the winner next Sunday.

  5. Wow, this is really hard because they each are so cute. If I HAD to choose, it would be 102, heart shaped. I love how the veil goes around the face.

  6. Hi Lisette,

    I have taken down your post on Sew Retro as we don't allow posts containing promotions of stores/online shops. You're welcome to re-post about your giveaway without mentioning your Etsy store if you would like.

    Thanks!
