I told ya'll I wasn't feeling well,but this is kinda ummmmm, how shall we say CC has lost it. See,I thought today was Wednesday and I hurried to get my post ready for Vintage Things Thursday.. Well, I guess I'm a day early to post..but I will leave it up and link to Suzanne tomorrow. If you have a spare brain cell, might I borrow it till I feel better??? :)
I almost forgot..that it's time to post for my favorite day of the week. Please everyone, join Suzanne and all the vintage beauties in Vintage Things Thursday. It's always so much fun.. just click on the link...ColoradoLady, you will have such great fun looking at all the wonderful vintage pretties..
Today,I feel like a very fortunate woman, Though I'm not rich with money,now will I ever be,I am rich in the love of family and friends.
All around us, there has been a sort of a bug going round..a sore throat,a cough and a general feeling of oh my gosh!!!!!,if only I could breath well. It's a miserable bug...
now,having said that..sick or not,I had a wonderful happening this afternoon. A friend had gone to an estate sale??? house sale??? a whatever the heck it was, it took place inside a rather large house with stuff piled everywhere..and being ever alert..she said she saw some stacks of fabrics,some sewing things..some patterns stacks of boxes,ribbons..etc.Obviously there had been a sewer in the household and they were getting rid of all her stuff. In any case,the lady running the sale allowed my friend to make herself a little stack of things she wanted..and when she was almost through with what she wanted and going through boxes of craft things..she opened one large box..and there before was a sort of Heaven to me.. she collects vintage sewing things and patterns, I also collect vintage sewing things,apron patterns..etc, I also collect vintage embroidery and craft transfer patterns..and she was sweet enough to grab that box for me..pay for all her things, and bring that sweet box straight to me. If I had not been feeling so miserable,I would have hugged her and happy danced..but you know me..in my heart I happy danced.
I'm not sure what the patterns are supposed to be for,..but they will be great for embroidery. Just run a copy off,trace the pattern with your trusty red Dritz transfer pen, and you're good to go with the pattern. After you have traced the pattern with the red transfer pen,lay the image face down of the linen, pillowcase,apron..whatever you're going to embroidery,iron the transfer on...and embroidery away..I hope you have fun with the patterns, I know I'm going to. There's enough embroidery and craft things to keep us all busy for awhile.
p.s. At the moment,while trying to survive this virus misery and the cold weather, I have tried to busy myself a bit with some quiet time embroidery. I have pillowcases with transfers of Sunbonnet Sue..and some of Raggedy Ann. I'm having fun working on Ann for awhile ,I normally do all embroidery with Sue,but it's time for new things for awhile....
