Free Draw Giveaway * Simple Embroidery * Elsie Mochrie

This week's give away is a little vintage book produced in 1947 which was previously owned by E Marsh who apparently paid 2/- (2 shillings) for it. So, it has been loved, but it is in good condition considering it is older than me.
It is well illustrated with 12 pattern pages and 5 whole pages of photographs - very lavish considering the still war-stricken times.
How wonderful that at that time, women could sit once more by the fire with their stitching and make not necessities, but embroidered breakfast tray sets, tea cosies, pochettes and, luxury of luxury, nightdress cases - for those blessed with a husband safely returned from the war.
There was such a resurgence of embroidery at this time - I wonder if anyone has ever researched the connectedness of post war years with the uptake of homely skills? So this is this week's giveaway - just click on the flying angel below if you would like to enter and I'll announce a winner next week on 7 April 2014.
