Vintage patterns… again!

As you know, I recently managed to get my hands on all of my Grandma’s sewing patterns and there is quite a collection! After a quick nose through, they ended up in my parents’ spare bedroom as I have nowhere

I’ve been lucky to get out for a bit today, just to clear my head and refocus on all things Squish. You’ll have noticed on Facebook/Twitter over the past couple of weeks that things haven’t been going to plan. Internet
