Marja, my old friend, had mentioned that her local thrift store was having a sale of vintage needlework items. I paid her a visit in the east end of the city. I overshot two turnoffs on my way out there and got lost on the way home!
This thrift store knows what they are doing.... Alas, the special display of old needle craft had been up for two weeks and, of course, completely picked over.
But I found some patterns that I have not got, the booklet has the cover and center pages missing, and about 25 grams of old 3 ply wool.
I spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying reading the patterns and plotting my next project. Cheaper than a movie or a coffee at Starbucks!
95 cents well spent.
