I nearly squealed when I saw this bag at the thrift store today:
I’ve been eyeing up a Holly Hobbie framed wall hanging for a while at the recycling centre but they are getting too pricey and lets face it: I’m not 10 anymore. This is an awesome excuse to have a little Holly in my life though. The bag is a little dirty and the embroidery probably won’t stand up to washing so I am going to try replicate the pattern (adds it to the floor length list of things to never get around to) but will use the bag as is cos you know….it’s Holly! I had Holly Hobbie’s Book of Time (or something) as a kid and may even still have it. Did you know they’ve made her over though? Mmmhmm destroyed her is more like it. I get SO MAD when they take my childhood memories and RUIN them for the kids of today. Seriously, leave my childhood alone and come up with a new idea you lazy jerks. Hmmppff. Here is the abomination that is the new Holly Hobbie. As the title says: Back in my day we didn’t doubt Holly Hobbie’s virginity. Enough said.
Once the bah humbugs pass I will be back next week with a embroidery book giveaway and a Christmas embroidery pattern freebie to share. Oooohh free stuff! Enjoy your weekend!
