The Canadian home front
Today is the 71st anniversary of the Normandy landings, the opening salvo of Operation Overlord.
I had to look it up but the D in D-day seems to stand for 'day'!

Good thing = Spotlight voucher
Extra good thing = Spotlight sale
Super duper good thing = complicated, unadvertised 40% discount scheme
Super duper but slightly dodgy good thing = free stuff!
The sun was shining, the sky was blue. Kim had taken me out to the French patisserie for coffee. Spotlight was just around the corner. I was only going in for interfacing...
The dodgy part of all this is this -
Didn't scan through the register! I have brown wool for a skirt. Just need lining from The Fabric Store on Brunswick Street. Who are having a sale. And guess who has a voucher? Yay!!

One of the classic vintage styles is Fair Isle. My dear mum is willing to take on the challenge. These are all from Susan Crawford's A Stitch in Time.
Notice they are all twinsets!! And of course, I must include my beloved reindeer top. Because I ask for it every year and I STILL HAVEN'T GOT IT!!!
(I'd normally include more about the history of Fair Isle and some 1940s examples but I'm blogging from my phone at the moment so that's why the posts are so short.)
