I buy a lot of books because of what I can make with them. But this one I bought, because I loved the cover.
There are some lovely patterns inside too - like this smocking diagram.
I am a true book lover, even though I seldom read them :-)
A New Manual of Needlework by E Griffith. First published in 1930. This edition was published 2 years before I was born in 1957!
Gorgeous cover - the colour!
I love old books too but always feel guilty about cutting them up. I've just done a collage with an old atlas and am feeling really bad!
Correction: its (not "it's) cover.
Thanks for pointing this out Anon. I have corrected the title :-)
Judge a book by its cover ;-)
