Catching Up

Longtime, no post!!!! I have been busy traveling and sewing but have not managed to sit down and write anything in a long time,
Grab a cuppa because the might be a long one! :-)

In January I decided to fly to  England and surprise my cousin for her 70th Birthday.
I got the first surprise when landing was delayed 2 hours due to SNOW!!! I have to admit, tho, that the journey from the airport  through villages and past fields was magical.
The surprise came off well and I had a great time catching up with family and friends. I love being in England, but maybe not in January so much.

This was the most wonderful little shop filled with so many wonderful goodies

In February, after catching up from jet lag..I put this cute little pattern together using Primitive  Gatherings  and
this cute pattern.

Circa 1934 using pattern from magazine

I think I may have left a few things out but they will wait until the next post. I promise to write more often.
