I even got into a bit of a bidding war on this last auction...I never realised how intense watching the final seconds of an auction can be...as I get out bid within the last 10 seconds and my fingers stumble across the iPhone screen trying to get my bid increased in time! But it was worth it - I won (take THAT other bidder!) and I LOVED what I received in the post a few days later.....
45 Misses patterns, mainly from the 70's I think, but also a few older - perhaps 50's.
Some of the patterns are total gems. Others not so great, and some ridiculous. But the good more than make up for the bad!
I thought I'd take you through a few of the patterns from time to time. If for nothing else but comedy factor - as I was sorting through them all I really loved the drawings on the front - the artists really gave these girls such individual characters and some of the facial expressions and body language is brilliant!!!
Take this one for example....blue maxi and yellow polka dot are totally bitchin' about chevron girl - I recon they're just jealous of her hat - and who wouldn't be!! But the characters aside, this is definitely one of my faves from the bunch...and I'm definitely going to be making this. The bad thing is that Northern Ireland 'Summer' is pretty much over. But there's always next year! (Plus if you saw my projects in the pipeline post, I have more than enough to be working on at the moment!!!)
