So many beautiful designs and patterns - so little time. I began smocking when my granddaughter was a year old. This year she turned fifteen. She is not so interested in smocked garments now, but there is always a little one who NEEDS a smocked outfit, so I am still subscribing to the publication. Last year when I was in OZ visiting family, I came home with some great lightweight, re-usable grocery bags. When my daughter decided to sail Central and S. America for two years, I gave them to her, but I missed them. Imagine my glee when this issue arrived with a new tote bag for my shopping. Thanks. It will be very handy.
