Mrs Depew Vintage giveaway winner announced

Hello friends! I'm back from a lovely week in Torrox, Spain and raring to announce the winner of my first ever sponsored giveaway, courtesy of Mrs Depew Vintage

The random number generator chose Ginny from Buttons and Bobbins, who said:

“I'd have to choose the Underwear and Lingerie e-book, since I'm making so much of it at the minute! I have a few of her patterns already and really love them.”

Congratulations Ginny!!! I'll pass on your email address to Anna, who will get in touch asap. 

A big 'sorry' to the rest of you who entered the giveaway (so many of you!), but luckily Mrs Depew Vintage patterns are very reasonably priced, so hopefully you'll be able to treat yourselves sometime soon! 

And just because I know you're all as nosey as I am, I thought I'd share some of my holiday snaps once again.

We stayed in a gorgeous and peaceful villa off the beaten track...

...surrounded by such beautiful plants and flowers!

In between copious amounts of sun-bathing, we visited some incredible places...

...and I became obsessed with the stunning tiles adorning most buildings. I couldn't help but think what perfect sun-dress fabric some of them would make...hopeless eh!?!

Although the thought of work tomorrow deeply depresses me, I am excited to crack on with some stitching soon and I even have a finished project to show you! I'm also looking forward to catching up with all your blog posts, although I did manage to keep fairly updated whilst away - the wonders of Wi-Fi!

Have you all had a good week / weekend?


  1. Thank you Marie! I'm so thrilled to have won. Perfect for my current undies addiction hehe. Your holiday looks like it was a lovely destination :)

    1. You're most welcome, let me know what you finally chose ;o)

  2. Wow! What gorgeous photos! Take me with you next time! ;)

  3. Congrats to Ginny!
    I love all these printed tiles, they're so beautiful no wonder you snapped so many photos!

    1. Thanks Bri...and to think these aren't even close to being all the photos I took ;o)

  4. Hm, I bet there will be pictures of you with your new creation against a tiled portuguese backround. Can' t wait!
    Hope your week started smoothly for you at work.
