Ok......hello all.......I have to share some exciting
book news.....I had to get out of the house for a short
time today and dropped in to my favourite second hand
book store. There must have been a reason for getting
out of the house......:-))
I found.....1) Mary Thomas's Dictionary of Embroidery
Stitches......1998 edition -glorious
2) The Complete Guide to Needlework (Techniques &
Materials) Edited by Mary Gostelow 1982 ed.
-tons of extant photos etc.,
and 3) Needlework Patterns from the Metropolitan Museum
of Art, by Susan Seigler 1976 ed. - more extant photos.
All for $12.00 Canadian.......about $7.50US in total.....and
a little tax but still all of that for under $10.US.......
I am very happy......they are all in excellent condition too.
I want to daydream and plan projects all night......:-))
