Hills & Whayman

Thank you Iris Hills and Joan Whayman. This booklet was one of the ones I picked up recently from Local thrift shop.

There are some gorgeous colour illustrations in this one, and a slip of paper from a Singer booklet.

Embroidery-The Book of "Hows" Series

Found two amazing stitch guides in a local thrift store recently. I am always on the lookout for embroidery tips and new ideas for stitches, and these little gems from bygone years were a brilliant find. I decided to share them with you, and I hope that the original authors will not mind. This one is from 1943.
