7th July 1979


Saturday 7
Bed last night at 3.00 am
Awake at 8.00 am
Went shopping in Stafford
Fi arrived at 9.00
Went to the Woolpack
Home at 10.45
Bed at 12.30 am

My random pattern tonight is not a knitting one but a sewing one (be relieved DP .. a no mustard cardi night !)
I hooked this out of the Charity Shop as I actually recognised it ... in 1973 I was the church's Rose Queen and my dress came from this pattern.

Not the pattern that was used in 1967 however, when I was a Rose Queen Attendant.



but this one in 1973 (Annie .. don't look!)

which was then recycled 30 years later in 2003 for my teen at Halloween..
The Haunted Bride .. she won the competition with this btw..

My mom made my sisters and I long dresses back then it was the in look.

She made my Velvet doll a dress like that too. That doll was very styling.
