Guess I'm not yet ready to post about what happened this past winter. So, I'm going to just say that I am home. Everything is still in boxes, because there isn't anywhere to put the stuff.
Daughter (and group) made it home from Europe all in one piece. She had a wonderful time, but now wants to go back with just one or two people or work or study abroad. (Sadly, she cannot be in Vandaleers next semester, because she has another class that she needs to graduate at the same time Vandaleers class is held.) I'll try to get her to post a few pictures of the trip.
Monday, Tuesday, and today - cold (below 50 degrees), damp, rainy, dark, and depressing.
Sunday: Daughter called and chatted for a minute, then she said she needed to get off the phone because she had to go to the bathroom. Said she'd call back in a few minutes. I'm thinking, "Well, that's silly. You called me. Why didn't you go to the bathroom before you called?" I continued putting dishes away. All of a sudden the front door flies open and someone hollers, "Is the bathroom free?" The instantaneous thought was that it had to be my friend Marcia because the dogs were just excited and not barking ferociously. I turn around and my daughter is standing there. I never made the "bathroom connection", because Daughter was last person I expected to see that day. Just call me SLOW ;)
Saturday was community yard sale day, so guess what I did? Yup, I spent money...
The four patterns on this page are out of a box of patterns that cost a dollar for the whole box. No copyright date on these four. Most are from the mid-sixties with the newest ones from 1970. Almost all are in the 31 to 32 inch bust sizes, with quite a few being teen sizes.
I also bought lace, ribbon, remnants, fabric, and books. But, what I consider the really good stuff will have to wait for another post. Stay tuned.
