So thank you again for your remarks. What I've enjoyed about reading blogs and now starting to blog is sharing a love of sewing with others but also seeing how diverse we are in what thrills each one of us. Our wardrobe needs are different, our styles are unique and special, even our access to patterns is certainly varied. Mary Nanna and Janine, you made me wonder if I would have this problem if those darn JoAnn's sales weren't so available to me?!
Now it's time for me to take some action. Since I had one of those milestone birthdays last month, and since there are now 61 followers just as I am entering my 61st year, and since I have vintage patterns from some vintage decades, hey, let's have a giveaway, one for each decade of my life.
Please leave me a comment with the pattern # that you would like to add to your collection. Giveaway drawing closes by Thursday, May 6, 2011. You can enter for more than one pattern but I'll eliminate your name for the subsequent drawing if you win one to give others a chance. Postage is on me.
I haven't inspected these for complete pattern pieces but will give my envelope impressions for each one.
