is it a bird? is it a plane? no, it's needlewoman!

Remember this book I got a few weeks ago? Care for a nosey inside?

You know you are on to a winner when this is the first page...

I want to be this little girl!

Or maybe I'd rather be this vampy lady

I quite fancy making this tea cosy

or I could knock up a pair of 'evening mitts'

I love these little pixies too

And if anyone ever gets the urge to crochet their own brassiere let me know, I can sent you the instructions!


  1. I enjoy collecting these books. I love the cottage tea cosy! Do you think I could have a copy of the instructions please?
    Take care

  2. I have a couple of these books too, I enjoy looking through them, I love the photos. Suzie. xxx

  3. Aren't vintage books so much fun to browse through!

  4. Love the tea cosy, but would need far too much wool to crochet myself a bra :)

  5. I have some of these mags too! I wonder if that bra is itchy!!!?? Hilarious!!!!
