Guess what made it down from Chicago yesterday? My millinery wire from Vogue Fabrics! In case anyone’s thinking of ordering from them below are a few photos.
There’s a live person at Vogue’s 800 number (800.433.4313; check their hours), just remember they’re on Central time. Nobody’s perfect, but they’ve done very well for me over the years… a decade! When I lived downtown and hadn’t time to get up to their main store I’d mail order. (Got a 6 ft tube of lining once, and the mail room couldn’t imagine what was in it! 😄)
(No, they’re not involved with Vogue patterns or magazines, and I’m not getting anything for telling my experiences with them.)
Wonder of wonders ~ we just had a cool, weekend. ☔️☁️ 🌂 I decided to take Saturday off and just read a book. All day. Then I discovered Sunday was UNESCO’s World Book Day.
Sunday I decided to get stuck into sample chapters from Scott’s Furrowed Middlebrow books, published by Dean Street Press. That’s when Winifred Peck’s Bewildering Cares ensnared me.
I became so intrigued with her good writing that I decided to take a break and look at her other books. Then decided to download samples from her two mysteries, Arrest the Bishop? and The Warrielaw Jewel. You know, whilst I was there . . . 😇
Well, I’d interrupted Bewildering so might just as well take a look at the Bishop? sample just because. And now I’m half way through. 😳
