2nd February 1979

Friday 2
Sam arrived at ours at 7.40
He told me that he'd had a big argume
nt with his family.
I don't know what to do I am so concerned he may get thrown out
Went to the Bay Horse in Formby (if in doubt hit the pub )
Got home at 11.30


Have had a busy old day, as I have family staying & visiting. It's strange you see no one for weeks then they all arrive like buses! Consequently I have little time to think. So tonight I will leave you with some 1975 fashions that you could easily run up on a sewing machine (I often did but they never turned out quite like it said on the tin... but I wore them anyway!!!)


Would you ever take a man seriously who wore a brown suedette suit like that???

Daddy P...My sewing machine IS my best friend as long as I treat her kindly...she makes sure I can make the best frivolous frocks ever....I'm not very good with these sort of patterns as I can never understand the instructions...so I have to make my own and then I make up the instructions as I go along...if only I could remember them...hmmmm

I've heard of your skills - perhaps you could run up something for me?

BT~ I had to buy a new sewing machine last year as my old faithful I got as an 18th birthday present finally gave up on me (I think making the curtains for my lounge was just too much for the old fellow!)

Yep those patterns made little sense to me too at times some where just so complicated

(ok when is the blog coming???)

Flapped patch pockets, super tunic tops, stylish saddles, all looks a bit complicated ... best I could ever accomplish with Mr. Singer was a wrap-around skirt (with incredibly groovy patterns, of course).
