Light Relief

So we will delve further into this weeks auction mega haul , ive now managed to get it down to 8 boxes after a huge donation to the church was dropped off . Now this was the little box among all the other stuff that I actually wanted , this will take me weeks to sought through and squirrel away .
We have a box of filthy dusty , that nobody could be bothered with . But came as a part of a bunch of wool and sewing machines and other strange .
Be still my beating heart, its yet more knitting patterns in fact loads of 50s and 60s dolly ones . Toy patterns taken from 50 s and 60s magazines etc etc .




One I have just the dolly for , but with my knitting abilities may bear no resemblance to this ..lol




And for all you vintage frock fans theres a nice pile of childrens dressmaking and ladies from the 50s , many are still in the postal envelopes unopened , some are used and incomplete but i may have a use for the covers from those . Yet to be sorted through properly , I can see this current haul taking weeks to go through properly .


So thats my light relief for the week , as i toddle off to the depths of Hull to escape the endless American election coverage , which goes to prove they have as much choice as we do in who leads us . Theyve been given a choice between an Orangutang and someone so slippery they make Tony Blair look honest . I think its time to stick Putin on the ballot sheets and just give up.

  2. I had to laugh at your comments about the American Election. I have been ignoring it as much as possible here in Canada, as I have much the same opinion as you. Although, what happens there will affect the whole world I am sad to say.....

    1. Ours can be pretty dreadful , but we do get the odd bulk buy ones now and again , they're the good ones , where the contents are still inside the furniture . You can even buy washers with the contents still inside

    1. I must be mental, the amount of cleaning sorting and mending that this will involve

  5. Carly is a prolific vintage pattern hoarder. I let her off though because she does get round to using them eventually so it's always nice to see vintage patterns being brought to life and put to use

  6. Don't go there with patterns I've been trying to create a burka one for Sindy and Barbie ....sometimes I'm even baffled by how I think

  7. Love that vintage booklet about making felt toys, and those old sewing patterns are so nostalgic. It's also interesting how sizes change over the years. A size 10 dress on an old pattern is more like a 12 or even a 14 now.
    Enjoying you blog.
    Best wishes

  8. This is a great find, the benefits of recycling and reusing. I got a bunch of boxes when we lost my grandmother and discovered there is a major size difference in those older patterns.
