 Not too long ago, my grandma sent over an entire Kirby vacuum box (vintage Kirby box, by the way...) full of old patterns.  The two in the pictures are a couple of my favorites.  My mom said I would want the vacuum box 
as much as the patterns...well, yea,  
 My grandma used to own a fabric shop called "The Sewing Box."  I remember going to spend the afternoons there and my brother getting in trouble for playing in the thread.  Of course, I didn't get in any trouble there...I was only "sorting" merchandise as I remember it.  Right, Grandma?  Anyway, back to the box.  I found some pretty 60s patterns in there that I want to make, and now that I am down almost two full sizes, I feel like I should treat myself to a little sewing project, don't you?  And, my little blog has missed some crafting lately.  So....first to find some fabric (maybe Joann's or Quilt Asylum?), and then I will share.  
 Favorite vintage fabric online shops, anyone?
Oh, and on a side note, I love the thought of making something with oilcloth. Hmmmm...the sewing wheels are spinning.
