So the other day when my mother and I were digging around for her button box, we came across some old fabric she had stuffed into a drawer. It’s pretty vintage, from the 1960s and 1970s! My mother did a lot of sewing back then. It’s pretty cool looking at her handmade patterns and all.
A smattering of fabric scraps:
I also found this cool pattern that looks rather smocklike. I kind of want to make it, but I’m afraid it would look like a maternity outfit. Also, you can see that my mother even kept the shopping bags. I think Discount Fabrics closed down decades ago!
And finally, this morning work began on our driveway installation. It’s a big, noisy job, and Deedle was freaked out pretty much the whole day. The neighbor also freaked out and now seems ti hates us. Maybe I should give him a pink cookie?
