I did finish my ducky blanket but have not gotten him stitched together yet. I'm kind of in a rut this week I guess. He should have already been finished and ready to go. Oh well, Here is a pic of him just laid out.
Here are a few pictures of my desk as it looks now.
The whole desk.
My Crochet books and leaflets. I still need to dig out my Cross Stitch books and put in here also. The white binder over here has some printed patterns that I have used a lot and plan to use again. Can you see the big stack of magazines up there?
My binders full of printed patterns neatly organized and put into categories. The little blue binder just has Barbie crochet stuff in it. The smaller white binder next to it holds all of my stuffed animals, kids stuff and dolly clothes. One of the big ones has kitchen, batch, rugs and stuff like that. Then the other big one has everything else under the sun.
And now to share my treasure with you. If you want to see any of the pictures up close just click on them and the will open larger.
I have never used the knitting needles but I did use the crochet hooks when I first started crocheting. Back when I made Sissyroo a bunch of Barbie clothes.
The book says "Copyright 1941, The Spool Cotton Company Litho'd in U.S.A. H-504 29th Edition 605". So it is fairly old. It has seen better days for sure. I keep it in a zippy bag to and in a pocket of a binder to keep it safe.
This hat is called a Calot. I love the little curl on top. Did women really wear this funny little hats?
I love the title on this page "It's American from Away Back". I guess it's their way of saying vintage.
I hope you enjoyed my treasure. If you would like to see more of the pictures just let me know and I would be happy to share more of them with you. I will probably start another giveaway in a few days. It will be another Fiber Trends Knit pattern. I have four of them left to giveaway. Have a great day!
