I love the pantaloons -- so fresh and pretty! It is surprising how things that seem tedious can really be enjoyable because they bring you to the essence of things. I know this is REALLY strange, but cloth diapering has been that oddly enjoyable experience for me. I love the wording in the book! That is how I think, but it seems awkward to write that way.


mary, i know that you think that way, and i love you for it. it does seem awkward to write that way, but it is how i want to write (even though i don't think that way as well as you do), inserting commas every few words. i am always having to stop myself from filling sentences with commas.


oh! and i would LOVE to see your flower garden quilt from the 30s!!!!


oh wow! that is So neat! I so wish you could have taught me more about sewing before you moved acrossed the US..lol I hate patterns (they confuse me...I confuse easy) so I do alot of things I can do quickly and easily...I dont dare to make pants of any sort but I want to. aww how fun Im impressed


They look so cute. I so love the hand stiching. I just tink it adds a charm that a machine can't.Like you I love sewing surrounded by family instead of by myself in front of a sewing machine. I do love both of them and have to admit even when you sew with a machine you make it look like it is stiched with love.The girls will be charming, like they stepped out of 1840 when they have them on.
