Linda, a blogging buddy from Australia, sent me a parcel of vintage cottons.
My granddaughter, who is visiting for the summer is enamored with the lime green floral print and I have promised to make her some shorts and a top.....its a long time since I have done any dressmaking, so I will have to resharpen my skills.
Isn't that Australian novelty print a hoot?
Every one knows a have a soft spot for shirting, so Linda sent some along with a lovely floral print that has 1930s 40s written all over it,
Linda's blog is just the sort I like, she writes about her farm life and her needlework, and is the only person I 'know' who has done shadow work...I am impressed
I love blogs that give me a sense of time and place.
