Does anyone else out there love bloomers as much as Nina and me. Here are mine and below my new pair I made this week, from the spare bit of a table cloth. Yet to put the elastic around the bottom, anyway. I've showed you mine its only fair you show me yours. We both feel we need a bloomers appreciation society.

I Just wanted to share this with you. A dear friend made it for me when I was very ill, I would carry it in my pocket when strength was needed to carry on. It is good to be reminded how far we have come and what seems easy to one person is a leap of faith for another. The pattern I think you all know is from the bee keepers quilt. hx
