I have so much going on that I almost don’t know where to start. The first fundraiser for our medical mission is done and it was a success! Just the right amount of chili, cornbread, and fixings, lots of friends and family, and donations to buy medical supplies for those in need. The venison chili came out great. We had chili to go and that sold out, too. We might hold another fundraiser closer to Christmas featuring our Mission Cookies.
This week is our yard sale with proceeds going to our mission expenses. We need money for translators, food and lodging, and transportation. It’ll give me a chance to clear some things out that I haven’t had a chance to list on Etsy. Folks have donated a few things to help out. I have a number of vintage rolling pins and teapots to set out among other things. Wish us luck.
In the meantime I have new patterns in GoofingOff Sewing…..great holiday dresses for the girls, outfits for the ladies, and a few things for the guys with just enough time to put together a few gifts.
|Simplicity 8118 Misses’ Jumper Size 10 UNCUT|
So retro and easy to wear.
|McCall’s 6544 Misses’ Sundress Size 8 UNCUT|
A casual look with a flattering cut that has a soft, easy flow.
|1940’s DuBarry 6018 Boys’ Playsuit and Jacket in size 1. COMPLETE|
So cute in a size 1 from the 1940’s. I can hardly believe it survived the years.
|Simplicity 5287 Jiffy Ties….Straight and Bow Ties, 1970’s Style|
Ties in a Jiffy pattern….be still my heart. The envelope doesn’t look too good but the pattern is a treasure. The only part that was cut was the bow tie and it is still usable. Great look for a wedding party.

Pants for a personal fit from the 1970’s.

This dress is a timeless look from the 1970’s.
|McCall’s 3224 Girls’ Dress and Pullover Top in size 8 UNCUT|
More retro looks for girls from the 1970’s.
So, there’s a taste of the new listings in GoofingOff Sewing. New fabrics, too, like Dora the Explorer, Miami Dolphins, and Spongebob.
|Miami Dolphin Fabric 60 inch wide by the half yard|
|Dora the Explorer by the half yard.|
|Spongebob and Patrick 44 inch by the half yard.|
Lots of great stuff so stop by when you have a chance. I’ll keep listing and adding.
There’s always something going on at GoofingOff Sewing.
