Yaaaaay! I got home from the Farm to find this package from awesome commenter LinB—thanks so much, Lin! I am all squiggly with excitement. Ok, can’t type any more, must go play with patterns.

Wow…what a great parcel.
You lucky lady!
JEALOUS!!! Have fun digging through them!
wow! Lucky you!!
Is the dashiki pattern in the back 3043 or 8043? You know if I had some dashiki prints i would be all over that one! Actually, I was at my friend’s place the other day and she pulled out some Kenyan fabrics that her father bought in the 60s. It was all I could do to stop myself from offering her my first born in exchange (you think I kid, but he’s driving me crazy today!). Very nice present !
Oooh, cool! You always do rock the African fabrics.
Oh man now you had to decide which one (two?) to sew first…. How awful LOL
Had to leave out about half — no room in box. Will send them later in the year, as most of them were summer things. I want to make it clear that not all of the patterns you received are things I made and wore, lol. Some of them are from friends’ mothers’ stashes. It bemuses me to think of those women — as I know them now — in hot pants, see-through blouses and giant wigs.
Thank you so much (again!) LinB! And there’s more? /swoon. Hehe—most of these patterns date from when my mom was a teen and young adult… it’s pretty odd trying to picture her in something like them, too.
Also that 5691 on the top is one that I’d seen elsewhere, and totally been lusting after—so YAAAAY!
You lucky thing. What a great haul! I’d love to come home to a pile like this!
I made 5691 in high school. Loved it.
