vintage sewing patterns

Over the past few days I have spent a ridiculous amount on vintage sewing patterns on ebay. I like to consider them an investment, for this shop which is yet to be but feels closer every day. I've been randomly stockpiling crafty stuff and supplier details, and have been writing business and financial plans and such. It may not be just a dream after all, and I'll tell you more about it when I have more to tell, I promise.

Meanwhile, it's rice and beans for me for a few weeks- but aren't they lovely?

(while writing this post I've surreptitiously bid on 3 more patterns. A 50's rockabilly dress at only 3 bucks? I need to STEP AWAY FROM EBAY)

Those patterns are lovely.

Oh, and by the way, I've been calling my sewing machine Kenmeister, per your great nicknaming suggestion!
