Second, flute repair guy charged me peanuts for my daughter’s leaky flute repairs.
Next, op shop guy gave me a heads up on a really old, really big book full of patterns. It’s to die for, he said. Yes, well, maybe. So he phoned the other opshop and got them to hold it for me, I got the kids from school and drove 25 mins to look at what I half suspected would be a 70’s book full of kooky peasant skirts.
OMG, it was Ladies’ Garment Cutting and Making by FR Morris !!!! Only the most covetable vintage pattern drafting book on the planet! And I got a Japanese pattern drafting book from 1969 and another copy of Successful Sewing, an oldie but a goodie, and from which my sewing avatar was derived.
I now need a cup of tea and a lie down.
