Introducing the Ninth through Twelveth Days of Christmas Free Vintage Pattern Share

First let me say, that I really need to get better at this Blog writing thing–because this is a post that should have been finished before the end of the year.

Please accept my apology for the delay, I do feel that you deserve an explanation even though I posted the last series of the Twelve Days of Christmas pattern book share on the Facebook page. Honestly it has to do with the joys and family commitments of the holidays.  I truly love that time of the year but I must admit that by the time it’s over I am truly drained.

Now during this time I was working on a Tutu for my granddaughter, and 18 Doll outfits, nine for each girl. Why I didn’t take more pictures rushing to get things in the mail, etc..

But here’s the tutu and one of my favorite doll outfits..
