Once upon a time, particularly when I was on maternity leave, I used to spend a fair chunk of time op/thrift shopping. We were skint, she slept better in the car, I had to get out of the house and it was a mighty fine way to break those groundhog-y days that made up life with a baby. And there was, of course, the thrill of the find. Back then, good op shop scores were a LOT easier to come by. These days, not so much. Or maybe I’ve just lost the patience to scour. Anyhoo, most of my pattern stash has accumulated over years and years and years of op shopping. This one’s a more recent score, copyright 1982, and apparently came from one Mrs Wood. Or maybe it was made for Mrs. Wood…?
