I enjoy reading about other people's projects and always contemplate taking on a project but I have to admit to lacking the time and dedication, I'm a classic case for starting sewing projects and then taking years to finish them off (I blame a penchant for over-complicating things and work sewing for getting in my way all too often!). My toddler has also taught me that although I may think I am entitled to free time during my day, if she doesn't feel like allowing it then I can't, no pointing bleating at her that "it's not fair!".
sImpetersen. Isn't it cute? I've drafted dungarees for Mango before now so I'm going to use the pattern as a basis for drafting her a spring playsuit, then have a play with it to help create an idea for a playsuit for me that's been in my head awhile as this pattern already looks pretty close to it.
I love the concept behind Stacey's giveaway - "paying it forward". She put up three patterns because that is what she has won, what a great giveaway theme, so I'm definitely going to follow it, probably as a spring celebration, I think (I can't wait for the arrival of spring, can you tell?!). Stacey already has has another giveaway on which ends tomorrow so pop over to have a look and enter. Today is the regular Wordless Wednesday, simply a photograph for inspiration, another lovely idea.

Further to my post about vintage and repro patterns, I am sure many of you will recognise this pattern.
One of my favourite eBay pattern sellers, Oncillakat has this for sale. Click here if you want a closer look and to see her other patterns, but beware, she has so many lovely vintage patterns at excellent prices you may find your visit separating you from a few dollars!
