One Thimble Issue 12

It seems just like a couple a days since I had the chance to read One Thimble 11, and here we are with Issue 12, three months later. I was again, one of the lucky ones to try out a couple patterns ahead and get my eyes through the e-zine before release. It did not dissapoint, of course.

Refashion Month 2016 Wrap Up
