I finally broke down and ordered the Spencerian handwriting package. So its a guidebook and then 5 workbooks for practicing and learning Spencerian handwriting.
2 volumns of 'Confessions of an Opium Eater'
1 volumn of The Vampire and other poems by Kipling
1 Volume called Dreams by some guy I don't know.
They all look suitably fun and twisted. And are short enough to fit on the bookcase of display.
To most of us now, patriotism and supporting the war mean sticking a flag on our car, or putting a yellow ribbon up somewhere. We support it in a very generalized vague way, with no real connection or feeling of connection unless a relative is in the military.
They have 3 patterns (one from each prior year) in both knit and crochet...but also take any gender neutral scarf you make.
I have downloaded patterns and will get started this weekend.
Or at least my favorite vintage magazine, Modern Priscilla does.
I made a set of lingerie bags as a bridal shower present, so here they are.
It starts with a pattern,in this case a vintage
transfer pattern retraced on a light box
The design is then transfered to the fabric using a water marker. The markings literally vanish if you get them wet.
This is a close up of the work just after the guide marks are washed out.
some Ironing, sewing and fussing and voila!
