I really don't need more dressmaking patterns - two drawers of my four drawer filing cabinet are stuffed to the gills with patterns - but how could I resist this one, only 75c at the Salvos in Sandown?

I love it for the envelope art, but it's the hat that really does it for me! The envelope itself is a little worn but, from the look of the pattern tissue and instructions inside, I doubt that it's ever even been unfolded much less used. I have vaguely nefarious ideas on painting or drawing on this image, but I think I'll scan it into a file first.

I love the jackets! So snazzy!

That's utterly gorgeous! It would have been verging on criminal to pass that up.

High. This is MY art.
I gotta lotta thots and stories in our 22 blogs…
and I’m more than happy to share,
to give to you what God has granted me - a steward
in this finite existence, this lifelong demise.
And why not?
Aren’t we all in the same family made by God?
Faith, hope, and love -
the greatest of these is love:
jump into faith...
and you'll see with love.
Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe
(what I write);
God believes in you.
God. Bless. You.
Meet me Upstairs where the Son never goes down…

Fabulous, and so now, I've seen such a lot of this clean couture cutting lately, it's so lovely to see quality coming back into fashion.
And what a wonderful surprise to see you on my blog again, I somehow lost your blog, thank you for your comment, my daughter has recently sold the chair for almost £300.
