As you can see the end papers have this DMC logo. The stall holder told me that the books probably came from the 1920s. There is no publishing date.
It is packed full of instructions for all the kinds of needlework you could imagine - "plain sewing", mending. "sewing upon white stuff" (whitework), crochet, knitting, tatting, embroidered laces, needle laces, and so on.

Well, the knitting has carried on this week. I have almost completed my Ice Queen. Hopefully, the last of the bead picot bind off will be finished this evening.
My workroom is currently being graced by the presence of three Amaryllis on the window sill. The first of these flowered for the first time this morning. A double white, it is absolutely gorgeous.
