  1. Anna, where did you find the pattern for those slippers, or did you draft it? I know someone who would love something like that for Christmas…

  2. Jennifer,
    Thanks for asking. Details about the slippers will be available in 2 days on the 22nd. That homemade gifts’ post will come with an assortment of period directions and patterns.

  3. Anna,
    This is so thoughtful of you. I can’t wait to see the slipper pattern. Will you be posting any other patterns? Thanks for your kindess.


  4. Mary,
    Thank you. Each day there will either be a pattern, directions and/or period inspiration. So, yes. You’ll just have to wait and see.

  5. Love the slippers! might need those for ME! I am thinking more and more about making gifts this year and buying less. But then there is that lack of copious free time….
