Retro sewing book give way

To the first person to comment with "I'll take them!" (in Australia only)
The pink children's clothes book contains drafting information as well as some very retro patterns. Maybe there is someone out there who could use them to create their own modern take on them.
The Simplicity book on the right has fasion tips (fabric selections and design elements to suit your build), measurements (including standard measurements tables) and alteration instructions, along with lots of techniques.
I am decluttering my home in an effort to get on top of things again and find more time for the things I love. I nearly threw these out but thought someone else might get something out of them. Back to the decluttering.

How I am spending Mother's Day

Up to a beautiful sunny morning, hugs from the kidlets, a little playdough playing, swinging time, and then MUMMY TIME! Andrew is out at the park with my babies right now, and I am QUILTING! Ahhhh... bliss. Singing along to the Foo Fighters as I go. I am determined to fill the day with my favourite things.

Plans for an afternoon tea with Mum and Nanna, and then out for dinner with the inlaws. Then home for a nice relaxing evening with hubby.

Hopefuly your Mother's day is filled with equally blissful moments. To all the Mums out there, wishing you a wonderful day.
