KT, One of the reasons I've always liked this site is that, while we all have our own prejudices, we are aware of alternative approaches to different problems and most of us suggest searching the archives for them. I think there is a mutual respect that characterizes these forums.

It's funny that you should mention sewing. I haven't thought about it in a long time, but I learned to sew from one of those drill sergeants who preached that the pattern was sacred. What a breakthrough it was when I ran across a pattern-alteration book in a junk store. Strange that by chopping up the patterns and tinkering with them the garments suddenly looked better than ready-to-wear and actually fit. If I had still been in the sgt's class I would have flunked for sure.

Jane - A & OL is fun, but so long. And for Abby and Martha there is only one break and it's just about enough to make the costume change. I was exhausted after that run.

No, I don't have that particular Workbasket. I inherited a bunch from a cousin, but I wish I had inherited my aunt's collection (boxes full!). Another cousin burned them all before anyone could get to them.
