Two More Neat Craft Books

It seems I keep finding great craft books at thrift stores that are just too neat to pass up! Like "Introducing Patchwork" by Alice Timmins, from 1968:
With great patterns and photos inside:


And "The Applique Book" by Charlotte Patera, from 1974:
More great patterns and ideas inside of this one, and a color picture of nearly every one:




Since I am rather challenged (to say the least) in the fabric crafts department, these are probably destined for the shop.

They both look very interesting. I loved to do patchwork when Josh was a baby, something to do with my hands while I was busy being a mommy. Love T

We cross stick pillows in our free time. Patchwork looks fun too.

Hi Heidi! I love finding vintage craft books like these too, even if I do just mostly like looking at the pictures ;)

p.s. Heidi was my runner-up costume idea for Halloween!
