Oh, Mille Bornes! I remember playing that. I might have to get one. Projects look doable. Except maybe that 40's dress...soooo many pieces!

I must admit its very satisfying in more ways than one -- to say, coup-fourré!But the dress doesnt have nearly as many pieces as the quilt, and of course they are full-sized!Jeanne

I have never heard of those games; they seem to have gone out of fashion now but I do recall many evenings, in my youth, spent playing.

I like your ideas for sewing, particularly the Edwardian Pinafore. I have a similar one which I wear when making bread - so old fashioned that it has ric-rack braid on it.

I am very taken with your little locomotive, I do have a fondness for trains.

Have a jolly weekend m'dear.

  • "'Then I am the first,' cried Pullings with infinite satisfaction. 'Let me wish you and Mrs. Aubrey all the joy in the world.' He grasped Jack's limp, wondering hand, wrung it numb, and showed the printed page, reading aloud, '"At Ashgrove Cottage, Chilton Admiral, in Hants, the lady of Captain Aubrey, of the Boadicea, of a son and heir,"' following the words with his finger.

    'Give it here,' said Jack. He grasped the magazine, sloped the page to the light and pored over it intently.

    '"At Ashgrove Cottage, Chilton Admiral, in Hants, the lady of Captain Aubrey, of the Boadicea, of a son."

    'Well, I'll be damned. God bless me. Lord, Lord … upon my word and honour … I'll be damned to Hell and back again … strike me down. Killick, Killick, rouse out a bottle of champagne -- pass the word for the Doctor -- here, Killick, there's for you -- God love us all -- ha, ha, ha.'

    Killick took the handful of money, put it slowly into his pocket with a look of extreme suspicion and walked out of the cabin, his lips pursed in disapproval. Jack leapt from his seat, took several turns fore and aft, chuckling from time to time, his mind filled with mingled love, happiness, fulfilment, and a most piercing nostalgia."
