Marbella Dress Giveaway Winner

Hi Readers,

Well, we are safely moved into our beautiful new home. But we don’t have Internet yet, so this is my first post from my phone. Sorry for the delay in announcing the winner. By Random Number Generator it is:

Canal Couture.

Please drop me a line to the email address listed in the about me section and I will send you details of how to claim your pattern.

We are hosting a small party in our new home on Saturday for my birthday so I have been flat out trying to get the house unpacked and ready. Sadly, the extra silk I ordered for my planned birthday dress has not arrived. Ugh! So frustrating and disappointing, but I have bought a dress to wear instead. Hey, your only 40 once and birthday means new dress. My new sewing room is the one place I haven’t set foot in since moving…after the party is over I will get in there. It’s been like 2 weeks since I last sewed and I miss it!

It is most definitely winter here now and I have lots of cold weather sewing planned!

Until soon…

By day I work in the exciting world of pharmaceutical regulatory affairs, registering medicines (!), but by night I turn in to a sewing diva, making all manner of clothes in my beautiful sewing space (which you can tour using the link at the top of this blog). I love how sewing and sewing clothes that fit my curvy body continually challenges me. I enjoy working with all different types of fabric, and whilst I don't like to put restrictions on myself and say I won't buy RTW, the truth is that I probably rarely do buy it, preferring the fit of my own me-made clothes. I love to use natural fibres where ever possible and colourful coats are an obsession of mine! Sewing is both my addiction and my therapy. You can contact me at

  1. Happy Birthday!
    I am sure the silk has not arrived for a reason! No point in trying to rush it, so it is good that you have just gone and got a RTW dress for your Birthday Party!
    Well done.. Looking forward to seeing the silk oe finished

  2. A very happy birthday to you. A shame about not receiving your silk in time. I’m just about to embark on my 40th birthday party dress too. I’m wondering if I could do without the pressure!

  3. Sorry I missed your birthday!! Hope you had a good party. Also hope you survived the move without any major hiccups. All the best in settling in….to the new home & the 40s 🙂 xx

  4. That’s a pity! I was busy going on job interviews last week so I didn’t have time to check my blog roll. Congratulations to the new winner!
    Hope you had a nice birthday!
