Matching things............

As most of you all know I collect vintage needlework magazines.  (My collection has expanded since that photograph was taken).  I think out of all my collection I prefer the Needlewoman which pre-dated the Needlewoman and Needlecraft which started in 1940,  Needlewoman was magazine issued between the Great War  right up to WW2 when it was combined with Needlecraft magazine.  


It was a quarterly magazine at first but I think it was quite a popular magazine because it became a monthly magazine


It is lovely to be able to match items up belonging to the magazines.  The magazine dated May 1934 a recent purchase from Ebay, but the embroidery my mother picked up at a jumble sale in the eighties, which I inherited and tucked away to do one day........... I think the day has come...... it has been started, and I think I would like to finish it.  


Although the little egg cosy is modern, probably sixties by the feel of the yarn (Bri-nylon feel), the pattern is March 1934.

Amaryllis Sunday ~ week nine

I haven't been here for about three weeks because I thought you might get very very bored with me just showing buds, large buds but nevertheless buds.  Also have had a few personal family problems which I would rather not go into here and letting the world know at the moment.


Slow and Steady has started showing her petals


Slow and Steady is a double petalled Amaryllis
The photographs does not do it justice, but I love it!
Thanks Jane, my best friend who does not have a blog but I know she reads this one!
