I went in today for the first time in months, to take advantage of the sale
on Christmas fabrics, more precisely, the cloth books to make for little
ones. A friend is a 1st time GM to 2 G'babies and another due in December,
plus DB/DSIL have the new DGD, age 6 months.
I saw the patterns(new to me) Taylor G for Hancock Fabrics patterns, has
anyone used them? There was a display of nice fabric next to them and cards
with some of the most beautiful buttons I've seen in a long time. Well, I
bought one pattern "Marine" to make and since the jacket shows 5 buttons, I
got a card of the buttons. It calls for a linen/linen-like fabric, but I
thought I'd make a muslin of cotton and if it turns out well, then do it in
light rose bengaline. Today's bengaline looks like, what we called silk
shantung in the old days.
Also.I was given a card and key tag with my customer # on it so I do not
need to have the address label from the mail-ads anymore.
Stop going into a store for a few months and you find all sorts of new
things going on. Yes, I did get two books to make, called "The Twelve Days
of Christmas for Children" to augment two+ I already have, "The Night Before
Christmas" and "Children's Christmas Carols". All my DGC have loved these
