This pattern was certainly a blast from the past, my Mum has used this pattern for years knitting the clothes for myself and my sisters dolls as well as for her Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren. A well used and well loved pattern.
This pattern, although not vintage was published in 1996 and was part of the treasure I found in Florida at a Thrift Store in Mount Dora. It is a project that my husband and I intend to do together, he will make a bed and I will dress it with one of these beautiful quilts and some lace edged sheets and pillow. A steal for 50c.
We also intend to work together again on a couple of 'Spoolie' Babies. The pattern was published in 1992 so therefore not vintage but again found in a Thrift Store on my last trip to Florida and a great treasure costing a mere 50c. The bed and dolls making a wonderful addition to our nursery for when the Grandchildren visit.
The final pattern book showcased today is another find from Mount Dora and another project earmarked for my husband and I to work together on. We intend to make the Poppyseed Kids, four delightful children with a touch of old-fashioned charm. One for each of our Grandchildren. This has lots of other patterns in also which we may use at a later date. The book cost $1 so was a real bargain and a wonderful addition to my ever growing collection.
Some lovely projects to look forward to doing, whilst cherishing memories of a wonderful holiday.
See you soon.
