Sewing books

A long time ago when my kids were a
toddler long ago. I bought this cute little soft
cover book with some how to sew patterns.
Just odds and end stuff for toddlers. I used
it for along time.

And after another long time, now my kids
are all adults and have their own toddler and
school age kids, I have rediscovered sewing
books! They are awesome! Much gosh, what
I have been missing! I feel like such a goof.

I spend hours browsing patterns, looking for
unique ones, ones on sale, or a 'lot' of them
on ebay. I have done pretty good too as
I have so many of them. I would say at
least 200. Now are lot are doubles (from
ebay lots), some are old, some are they
kind of pattern I look at and say, well
I might make that one day. I just love
them all! They represent such possibilities!
Gifts to give, clothes to wear, bags totes
and purses to carry,baby layettes, baby
bedding...that should give you the picture.

And today, I rediscovered the sewing
book. They come with actual PATTERNS!
Wow! Sooo, I spent a few hours browsing
ebay, and did find a few that I thought were
interesting, but could only get this one to load

I have always wanted to try embroidery with
silk ribbon. Thought it might add a nice touch
to purses, blankies, Olivias clothes, my jammies,
stuff like that! I thought the price was pretty
good too, $3.50.
Now I know there are free instructions on line.
I can print them and follow them I know,
but thought it might be nice to be able to
sit and have the book at hand.

I am thankful for/love
