I got a card in my mailbox yesterday to tell me there was a parcel being held for me at the local post office. It turned out to be a large envelope of ancient craft magazines and random pages from Dave’s mother. I’ve never met her in the 2 years I have been with Dave so it was unexpected. But she’s old and sick and I am as close a hope for grandkids as she’s got. So she sent me a sample of her hoardings. She’s a packrat who has had over 70 years to collect stuff. She also has smoked like a chimney for at least 50 years so the envelope contents are mighty whiffy. But there are some treasures in it. Knitting and sewing patterns mostly and a small pile of embroidery transfers from…dates unknown. They’re old and not in great condition (hence the quality of some of the scans) so I have started scanning them for safe keeping. And of course I had to share:
Click on any one of them to go to my flickr photostream where you can download the larger size and see the other transfers I have previously blogged.
