After leaving the show we were ready to just collapse in a heap, so retreated to the B&B we were staying in. Luckily it was a quick walk up the hill away from the show.
The following day we went round my favourite charity shops in Harrogate. More vintage patterns:
|Trouser patterns - clockwise - patterns dated 1986, 1996, 2001|
|Linen tray cloths, silk hankies and buttons|
A rather interesting book which might just get me started in using my knitting machine:
My bags were extremely heavy by the end of our stay.
What else have I been doing? Well, I gave a couple of talks, put up an exhibition, completed some dressmaking projects too. The last of these is a pair of culottes which should be finished later today. I made the classic error of cutting them out without adding any seam allowance........... It would have been disastrous had it not been for the deep dart on the back and the large pleat at the front of the legs. A bit of tinkering about and I think they should fit well. An interesting problem, and one mistake I really shouldn't have made.
