Do you have a stash of craft books? I tend to hang on to them the way I do odd balls of yarn. I really love the old ones that are no longer in print. This one is probably about 60 years old and isn't it wonderful? Madame Weigel put out all sorts of crafty books as well as paper patterns for clothing. Mum used to use them all the time when I was little. My siblings and I grew up wearing Madame Weigel designs. The price of 8d. on the cover would have bought a couple of pounds of sausage mince in the 1930's. I love the illustrations, just sketches of what the item to be made would look like - no photos. Aren't we spoiled with today's lovely glossy publications. I remember Nana making a few of the items in this book but I've never tried any of them myself. That's about to change. I intend to have a go at the afghan rug pictured here as I'm interested to see how that rose centre turns out. If you click on the picture you may find that you can read those instructions, if you care to. Must go now as it's newsletter time again and I've sneaked some time out to say hello to you. Hope your day is a good one. Bye for now until next time.
