Hello from the beautiful, sunny spring day! And thank you for your comments, reading and support, I really appreciate them all.
Today there won’t be that many words but pictures instead. While pottering around my craft room earlier today, I came across these old magazines. No, I have not saved everything from the year one, but just the special ones, although I truly need to go through them with critical eyes to see if they are that special any more but just collecting dust. I am not sure just how I came about having these three pieces, but they are old, from the years of 1981 and 1982. I might have bought them myself on my very rare visits to Helsinki, Akateeminen Kirjakauppa was then and is today, one of my most favorite stops there.
I have had very limited skills then but nothing has stopped me from dreaming or for aiming high. The magazines are very thick, more than half of the pages are full of adds, maybe even more, but the pieces of embroidery, crochet and knitting are beautiful and none of them quickly made.
These are all knitted blankets...
Some of the pictures are black and white.
There were pages upon pages of embroidered linens, one more beautiful than the other.
Wool with you,
