I know how difficult it is to find vintage patterns in large sizes. It's almost like all women back then were a slim 30 bust and 25 waist. I don't think I've measured either since I was 5 years old. Anyhow, I have decided to give away two of my patterns in large sizes for others to enjoy. Hopefully they will get used and loved instead of sitting in my sewing room.
I love to cook but hate washing up. I own over 300 cookbooks and counting. I am a sucker for pretty cookbooks and don't generally like cookbooks without pictures. I love history and food history and I am very interested in period, especially medieval, cookery as well as modern.
I have recently taken up sewing and now I'm a fabric stashaholic and a pattern junkie. Just like my cookbooks, I own over 300 patterns before counting pattern magazines. As you can see, I have a bit of an addictive personality. Thankfully, I only seem to be addicted to good stuff.....and shoes (but that's another story!)
I own three bikes, three helmets, two pairs of cycling shoes and 5 pairs of real running shoes that look exactly the same, 4 still in their boxes because they have been discontinued and I bought all the stock left in a specific store. Yeah, I'm crazy.
