My mother found this old book of hers and gave it to me. The cover is as grubby as my table top but the pages inside are quite well preserved. I've been planning to get a book on embroidery for some time now but this is all I need for now. I absolutely love it.
It was published in 1982 which makes this book about, oh, only 31 years old.
I'm guessing this means my mother's container of old embroidery floss below is roughly the same age. It's amazing the colours haven't faded.
Ah, the 80s. Brings back lots of memories.
I've got a 30ish year old book on embroidery and container full of floss and a 40 year old sewing machine.
Being stuck in a time warp sure has its perks :)
