New Fabrics ... Old Memories!

Wow! These are the latest two fabrics I have ordered and received - aren't they just wonderful and I think I know what I am going to do with them! Mammogram Day - so this was my consolation for a bit of discomfort! Bill Granger - one young Ausralian man to die for! and a great chef, too - another Photosh0p manual -I WILL do it! - and a relaxing fiction novel!

Pics below - from 1989! I have been chatting with Nedra and that has brought back a lot of wonderful memories!

Once I master Photoshop these images will be perfect! Danielle, Ed, Moi, David (twins!) on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! Check out the white boots and the tiny slim figure, big shoulder pads and all, LOL!

One of the most glorious shots - the Golden Gate, San Francisco - taken on a super professional big and heavy Nikon and scanned today!
Lombard Street - the Most Crooked Street in the World - how beautiful - would you drive down it nowadays?
Thanks, Nedra for reminding me of wonderful times - perhaps I will have a little travelogue of the wonderful times we had in the USA - four in total - and we loved every moment of them - I
think five months in total!
Happy day!

Your outfit definitely screams the 80s. Fun...I remember the BIG shoulder pads and I wore boots (not white) with the pantlegs tucked in. I've seen the darling bird fabric but not the one with the words on. Fun!!!

Karen said...

I love the fabric with the words on it!

Sue said...

Wow I love the "knit one purl one" fabric, just gorgeous. Didn't we love our shoulder pads in those days along with the big hair. Not to mention being just a little younger too.

What a sweet post. I enjoyed it. It was a good vacation for me, too. I love your fabrics. I know I say this all the time but we do have the same GOOD taste!

Gorgeous fabrics, Lurline! Love the pictures too of the US. I too have some of those San Fran shots, but set in 2004. Thanks for bring back some fabulous memories.

Had my first mammogram last week like turning 40 was not bad enough. So glad you rewarded yourself. Love the photos.

Hello there Lurline. You CAN learn Photoshop! Be sure and look on youtube for some video tutorials. I found them very helpful.
