Oh good gravy! I have just now (where have I been?) stumbled upon colette patterns, excuse the glazed expression – mouth agape. I am smitten and will be purchasing soon. Just beautiful! And to think you live in my city, well, I’m so glad to have found you. Hurrah!

Hi! I popped over from Dress A day and I am enjoying checking out your blog. This entry struck me as particularly funny, since I’m obviously up to the same thing as you!

Wow! These are amazing. I have the same “Happy Home Rust Proof Needlebook” but it is very worn. It was my Grandmother’s and I still use it!
