Stitch and Bitch

Life stressors continue but nothing like an afternoon out with a chum to brighten the day!  Shirley and I went out for a Stitch and Bitch and gift exchange.  Lottie couldn’t attend so we may have to do it again some time so we can get our gifts to her!  We missed you Lottie!

Since my birthday is coming up, Shirley gave me my gift first.


A beautiful pattern for 1912 outfits (love the purple one!) and a button hook.  Now I need some American Duchess button shoes….

Then we did the Christmas gifts…20181202_143422

Shirley gave me some fun sewing machine fabric…I don’t know yet what I will make but it sure will be fun what ever it is!  She also gave me a house wife’s sewing kit and some cool light up crochet hooks.

I happened to bring a crochet project to the Stitch and Bitch so I tried one of the hooks out.  I really liked it!  I especially liked the shape of it.  My hand didn’t tire out so quick.  I liked the light too and it will be especially useful in my somewhat dark living room.


I gave Shirley an 1890’s catalogue.  It is in very sad shape but the pictures inside are still very clear.  I gave her some Dorset buttons that I made and a few retro cards and post cards.  I also gave her a thimble but somehow managed to chop that out of the photograph.

Neither of us are rolling in cash but I must say, we did a pretty good job of getting some really cool gifts.  So much easier to get gifts for like minded friends!  You’re next Lottie!

    So sorry I couldn’t make it. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun! Looking forward to seeing you both again sometime when my life is less crazy busy.

    My dear you both look so so happy and I loved the wrap with the paper and pin, so special. Life has turned out to be so busy for all of us that we forgot to remember how easy things could be. I think you two are real kindred spirits and yes you are spot on when you can buy or make something for someone that has the same likes. May the joy of giving always be with the both of you. Blessings from above for a year filled ahead with health, peace and happiness and the love of good friendship. Thank you for sharing all your treasures not just today but all year round. I really do enjoy seeing so many wonderful ideas and things from days gone by. One day I would love to hook up again and see you amazing little women. I love that line from a old book, I think it means big ideas out of tiny souls. Thanks again! Sandra A.
