When I Am An Old Woman

"----I shall wear purple, with a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me".(Jenny Joseph)


And so shall my blog! It asked for a face-lift. In doing so, most of my side-bar information was gone, and it took a while to set everything back up. Thank you all for commenting on my purses. I appreciate the interaction.


Along the same lines, I finally went to the play, "Menopause", with my daughter and a couple of friends. I may be one of the few left on the planet who hadn't seen it. It was hilarious! DD laughed until she wept all the mascara off her lashes and onto her face. It was exactly what I needed, exactly when I needed it.

A couple of days ago, I made a trip to Jo's. Unfortunately, there are no quality fabric stores anywhere near me. Very thankful for online shopping. Still, Jo's is great for pattern sales, and I'm not a fabric snob. Cheap, expensive--I've used it all.

This is what I bought. Three Vogue patterns, on sale this week. I saw these on your blogs--oh how you tempt me! I am shameless.
There's a piece of black gab, which will be pants. The green with white circles is poly, which will make a blouse. There's a blue/white stripe cotton shirting also for a blouse.
I'm going to get started on something today. Maybe something purple?

Love the color of your blog. Maybe you should add some red buttons to the header ;) Just kidding.
Great find on the patterns.

Great job on your blog. I love the color purple.
Great pattern choices! Will you make the Marcy Tilton pants or skirt? I like the style and would like to see them made up!

Love the blog, and your picks from Jo-ann's look fantastic!

Love your purple decor! I cut out two practice pockets but have run out of time today. I'll get some practice in during this week. Thanks for the advice.
