I got an unexpected package in the mail from my Grandma.
3 yards of lovely vintage fabric and these vintage patterns. One is actually a little crafty publication from 1969. It's addressed to my great great Grandmother, Ethel.
What a treasure!!
Miss 10 & I looked through it "ooohing" and "ahhhing" at every page. She's all ready made a knitted head band for herself and little 6.
The apron patterns were purchased new by Grandma years and years ago..... and now they have found their way to me. Can you believe they were under $1 new.... and Grandma said fabric used to cost 25 cents a yard..... those were the days!!
Grandma found the fabric in a thrift store just a few hours before she sent the package out......
A lot of my thrifty habits and love of creating definitely came from this woman. I remember her knitting us slippers when we were little and she always made her own home decor.
Thank you Grandma, these are treasure I certainly love.
