Thanks!!!

I swear I wasn’t intentionally fishing for compliments, but they really did make me feel better about my new hair-do. So Thanks!!!!!! I really appreciate this community of lovelies :). I feel like our little corner of the internet is the only one devoid of trolls and nastiness. You’ll are sweethearts.

new skirtI thought I’d share some eye candy in the form of vintage patterns recently acquired for only 50 cents each. If you’re in the Portland area and remotely interested in *anything* crafty head to Scrap! You’ll love it, I promise.

My absolute favorite pattern, is also coincidentally, the oldest one of the bunch. It’s the top right pattern, a swim suit pattern from 1940. It’s amazing to think I might make something over 70 years after it was first made. My great-grandmother and I could theoretically share a hand-made wardrobe. We’re all connected to each other aren’t we?  I also love the shirtwaist Hollywood Patterns dress. It also won’t require any grading as it’s my size. Bonus!!!

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season. I’ll be holed up in my bedroom making Christmas presents.

xx, Cynthia
