I've been wondering about these day-of-the-week sets. Aside from church on Sunday, were certain days traditional for certain chores? This little girl was a hot iron transfer from Mom's stash, but I found the whole set of little girl days of the week patterns available to download for free from French Knots.
I'm not crazy about my color selections for this one. When I pictured the blue jacket and red dress, I didn't think about how the white space would make it look. She's a little more patriotic than I was going for. And I have no idea what that pointy thing in the center of her shopping bag is. Any guesses?
While I was looking for some skeins of brown DMC for the next square, I saw these:
Has Joann's always had these tubes of ballpoint embroidery paint and they just weren't on my radar? Great-Grandma left behind a huge selection of these in a tin designed to hold them (a lot like this one that I found on Pinterest) By the time I was old enough to try them out, the tips were pretty gummed up.
She'd painted a huge set of little girls in different national costumes. I'm sure they were hot iron transfers, but I can't seem to find them in any of my Google or Pinterest searches. Anyone have any idea what they might've been? I'll know them if I see them, but I can't remember enough specifics to come up with useful search terms.
