What a wonderful find!
Fab find!! xxx
very nice thrift!!i'm on holiday right now en thrifting away here in the netherlands ;)have a nice week!daan
As a teenager learning to sew, my mother bought me this book, and I still refer to it. Is it possible we are going to see something sewn from your fabulous collection of vintage fabric?
thanks everyone for your comments!daan - hope you have good luck thrifting on your holiday :)martha - how wonderful that your mother's gift has stayed with you & is still useful, so sweet! but sadly no, I just can not seem to get past my mental block when it comes to sewing! I want to make things but I'm intimidated by patterns & the technical aspect of the whole thing...I pretty much just bought the book for the illustrations because they would be perfect for embroidery ;)
Happy 2014 New Year!I am a bit late in finding you...just recently learned about that "next blog" thingy at the top of the screen...you are a wonderful find. I too buy old pattern books. The older the better in giving step-by-step instructions on actually how to sew. One thing though, if you can embroider, then you have been "hand sewing" all this time!!I started at about seven with blue birds (stem stitch), then moved on to samplers (cross stitch). How many accordion solos can I hope to watch? And any duets I should I watch out for in your archives? Thanks for posting. delia in rb
