Patterns from the Past Giveaway Winner

I hope you've all had as lovely a holiday season as I have so far. I had a great, lazy and relaxing Christmas at home with my husband and Vinnie the Cat. I also got exactly what I wanted for Christmas, a beautiful Bergans of Norway coat that I have been visiting regularly and dreaming about. Do any of you make regular visits to the mall to remind that special something that you haven't forgotten about it?

I hope that those of you who celebrate the holidays got some wonderful presents and time with your family. The thing I'm looking forward to the most about moving back to the U.S. (Let the 7 month count down begin!) is being able to spend more holidays with my family. I love my husband and would follow him anywhere, and living in Norway has been an amazing experience, but Christmas is always hard. Missing family is the #1 ingredient a girl needs to be homesick.

But back to happy things, it's time for one lucky reader to treat themselves to $50 worth of patterns from Patterns from the Past!
To enter the giveaway you all commented on which patterns you liked most. I loved reading the comments and seeing which patterns you all liked. Some of your favorites are below:

Vogue 6830

Simplicity 8452

Butterick 4175
You all have very good taste! And now for the winner, as chosen by a random number generator:

And the winner of the $50 gift certificate is Cherise from Finland! Cherise also coincidentally writes a beautiful blog in English about vintage clothing called Vintage Follies.
Congratulations, Cherise, you can expect an email from me shortly!

I would also like to thank Michelle of Patterns from the Past for offering such a generous giveaway prize to A Few Threads Loose readers.
You are the best group of people I've ever encountered and I love to find ways to thank you all for reading.

As a token of my affection, here is a picture of a kitten.

  1. I can't even imagine the holidays without my family. I hope that next year, when you're back in the US, you get a huge dose of your family for Christmas!
