Haven't I seen your face before...?

Yes, it looks a bit familiar....

Same, same - but different. Better.
And gosh... don't those new 40mm antique brass tri-glides look fabulous?

A new and improved Baguette pattern will be finished soon.... Despite great feedback on it, I've been wanting to rework it for ages. I re-drafted the pattern and am revising the instructions with all that I've learned in the (yikes!) five years since the Baguette was born.

(BTW - I'm thinking this black and cream number needs a splash of red... what do you think?)

Because of the extra development (read: "techniques and tips" for you, "hours at the computer and sewing machine" for me...) the price will be going up to $19.95.
If you'd like to pre-order the new version of the Baguette you can have it at it's current price ($17.60) and save yourself $2.35. Order before the price goes up on the website and you'll get a bargain.
EDITED TO ADD - THIS OFFER IS NOW FINISHED, SEE THE NEW PATTERN DETAILS HERE

I'm also re-working the Day Bag instructions. Stay tuned for that one. Oh, and I'm fiddling around with a whole new bag pattern, too.... shhhhh.

I read this post this morning and it is only now that I reread the title that it clicked '... Weren't you the boy who used to live next door? Weren't you on television every night? Haven't I seen you 'round? Take a look at me I'm Yesterday's Hero, Yesterday's Hero...' Ah Squish, how we miss those glory days of the early/mid 70s. Donnie Sutherland and Sounds without whom there would have been no RAGE!
I am laughing and singing out loud.
