We have been very quiet here this week and so the transfer above seemed appropriate. It’s a beautiful image taken from a very old issue of “The Needlewoman” dated 1933 – must have belonged to my grandma I think. If you ‘d like it, then please click here for the free pdf file – which includes the original stitch guide and working instructions from the magazine.
I’d like to say a very big “thank you” for the kind thoughts and sympathy sent by so many people, both through comments and emails – I was so touched by them all. And just to let you know that our giveaway judge slipped away very peacefully … her great old heart was simply worn out. But she left the junior judge behind – I’ll have to start teaching him to operate his paw and select a winner before the next giveaway. Better buy a very large bag of biscuits – I feel multiple training sessions will be needed!
