Interlude: charity shop finds

I wanted to show you my finished Cladonia shawl today – I unpinned it over the weekend and it came out beautifully – but the weather was dismal when I wanted to take photos this morning. Of course it’s lovely out now, but it’ll have to wait for another day. In the meantime, here’s a few pretties I’ve found at charity shops recently, just for funsies.

    I have that same needlework book, picked up for ten dollars in a thrift shop in Christchurch, New Zealand. I think it was written for British ex pat women inIndia…circa 1925-1930?

      Is that so? It would be very interesting if it was! I actually did a short comparison of this book with a slightly later edition over here:

      if you’re interested. If you have any other information about the book, or know of a source to find out more, please shout it out! I love these old vintage needlework books and would love to know more about them!
