Telaria’s Fridays

If you didn’t know, Telaria is giving away some prizes every Friday this August, and I was the lucky one last week. The prize was a Japanese pattern book for children and 150 cm of one print belonging to Lotta Jansdotter Glimma Collections.

Yesterday morning I received an email letting me know that I was the winner. You cannot imagine what a great and pleasant surprise this was, since winning this draw never crossed my mind (I know, I should be more positive). In the email, Miren told me that, after checking my blog, she was thinking that I could be interested in a different kind of book (I’m not the mother kind of blogger), so I could choose any other book from their Japanese collection. After giving it a bit of thought, I decided to stick to this book for children, since my niece Paula will turn 4 this December and I should be making something nice for her. In the email, Miren also wanted to confirm my fabric of choice (Soba in Fog) and she was super nice all the time.

Another thing I would like to mention is that last week I ordered some fabric from them (which arrived today) and if they had realized earlier, I could have this and the prizes shipped together, which would have saved me some money. Mea culpa. This happens when you have two email addresses. Anyway, it was a nice detail that they commented on this even if it was too late.

And these are the two purchases that arrived today. The one on the left is a double gauze  and the one on the right is a lightweight cotton, and they will become blouses.

With the fabrics they also included three beautiful mother of pearl buttons and this lace bias tape. Aren’t they a beauty?

I love when online shops have these details with us. It doesn’t cost much and for us it’s like opening a surprise birthday present.


  1. I love ordering fabric and notions! I love the excitement of opening my package, the anticipation. Sometimes the fabric is not right for the project I had in mind but there is always room in my closet for more fabric, until the perfect project comes along for it! I love the black and white butterflies! and the buttons are fabulous!

    1. It also happens to me when I order wool and almost any other thing 😛 You cannot touch them in advance, but the surprise is even better. The one with the butterflies doesn’t have a white background, it’s light pink! Isn’t it gorgeous?

  3. Gracias, Sionita. Le hacía falta desde hace tiempo, y hay cosas sobre las que aún tengo que trabajar un poco.

    Mi ritmo de vida no me deja los viernes libres, por eso llevo meses sin ir; pero a ver si éste hago una escapadita 😉
