Ruth and I went to the local Children's Library yesterday afternoon. I haven't been in there since I was 10 which is a long time ago people! I had to bring home this book which was first lent out in 1975, so would have been in the library last time I visited.
It's a gem of the highest order, I wish I could own it. Honestly it has so many cool ideas. Like this which I think will be perfect for the Great Big Postcard Swap. Soooo cute!
It has the dearest little illustrations here and there.
I nearly jumped out of my skin when I saw this owl. How great is he? Chrissy wants to embroider him on a plain sweatshirt!
It has really well written instructions, complete with drawings to demonstrate the techniques. Oh how I love it.
I can't wait to try some of the projects in here and learn some new stitches. I wonder if I can bribe the library lady to let me keep it??? Honestly though I'll have to take my camera next time and show you what it looks like. It has not changed one bit since the 1970s, it's fantastic. If you live in Christchurch its the best children's library in the city and free to join. Its by the river at the end of Ford Road right by Opawa School.
