How fabulous, the arrival of the postman with parcels of joy to rouse me from my sick bed.
The lovely Terri, despite struggling with a broken wrist, sent me this beautiful red velvet frock. It's so bright you'd hardly notice my deathly pallor.
Also in the parcel was this dreamy silver and lilac high-waisted maxi skirt.
A groovy retro print skirt (for which I've already got plans) and a ultra-glam Butterick dressmaking pattern.
And this 1970s-does-Edwardian maxi dress.
What are the chances of not only getting two parcels from bloggers in one day but also receiving the pattern from which the dress above must have been originally made? (It's the 1970 Simplicity pattern on the top left-hand side.)
I can't wait to get cracking on this lot of 1960s & 1970s patterns from the wonderful Tamera! Hot pants, flares and maxis, she knows me so well.
Check out those pants!
Tamera is a queen of card making. This beauty features a vintage postcard set on a patchwork of hand-blocked Indian papers inspired by my curtains.
My blogging buddies rock.
Yes, it's official, I've got mild pneumonia. Rock and roll, huh ?
Hopefully the antibiotics will kick in soon but in the meantime at least I'm a well-dressed invalid.
See you soon.
