March 09, 2007



I have an old pattern book Regina (Monster Crochet) sent me-marked 25 cents and it has all kinds of kitchen stuff, including a chicken hot pad (the kind where the body is two flaps and that part is the hot pad-remember those?)-everything is done with #10 thread and I am trying to figure out how to adapt it and that means I have to get some plain cotton yarn, so we shall see how that goes (LOL)

I am sure the ads are freaky, I love that kind of stuff.

I am working today again also-I have more file folder cuts on my hands then I care to discuss right now. The good news is I am picking up a bunch of stuff and bringing it home today to do here.


My mother had some pretty major girdles... I think everyone did in the early '60s, don't you? I think a few years later, the bras hit the burn barrel wrapped in matching girdles, don't you?

I just love what you've been doing over here, Bron. ; )

Argh! chickens! Argh!


Cute mag! 104 issues? Sounds fun! Hope you got to stay home and knit.


I'd go insane if I had to wear undergarments like that. Though it makes you think - maybe part of the obesity problem today is because people wear loose clothes and keep chowing down since they don't feel the discomfort that they would feel wearing the restrictive foundations.


Deneen - I'm running across so many patterns for thread potholders & such. I absolutely love them, but don't want to spend that much time doing thread crochet for the kitchen! I'm definitely too lazy. :)

Vicki - That's so true, except Mom was old enough to miss the burning altogether. :) At least she graduated from rubber girdles to spandex! LOL

And thanks - I'm glad you're enjoying my own particular memory lane.

Carrie - I stayed home but there wasn't much knitting. I read two books, which was even better. ::Grin::

Kristen - That's something I've heard people say before. For example, the wearing of sweatpants instead of jeans lets people eat & eat without realizing how big they are getting. All that stretch material in clothing is a bad idea.
