Happy book day! Today I’m combining my love for books with my love for embroidery.
Speaking of embroidery love, first I need to talk about how bad I want this alphabet ! I love wood, I love the alphabet, I love embroidery and I love what I could do with these!
Okay, need to fan myself a bit and get back to books. Vintage Ondori books to be precise.

I bought both these books on eBay because sometimes, no matter how much the thrift goddess loves you, she will keep certain things from you. When it comes to me she keeps Vintage Ondori books far away on eBay and never at the thrift store for $1.50. But that’s okay because there’s eBay and sometimes I get lucky and actually win something instead of lose it to that evil program that lets people outbid you with 4 seconds to go! Again, I’m getting a little overexcited – sorry.
Tomorrow is more embroidery so please come back and maybe you’ll get excited about the vogart pattern I’ve got for you!
Oh, and one more thing…here’s a picture of the girl cat sleeping in the sun for those of use who had dreary days that were all overcast, cold and wet.
