It's time again for Vintage Things Thursday. I always enjoy the time spent on Thursdays, looking at all the wonderful vintage things and collectable.
So, lets all skedaddle on over to
Coloradolady and see what everyone is showing today. I've seen some beautiful things and can't wait to see more...:)
We begin with a McCalls craft pattern that includes table runners, place mats, napkins..potholders,pillows, aprons and curtains.....all with gingham and gingham stitch/chicken scratch embroidery. I remember some of these things so well.. back in the day, it seems as though everything had a special touch, whether it be embroidery, crochet or tatting....It was a very good time.
This McCalls chicken scratch/gingham stitch pattern is dated 1962. I think my favorites on here are the teapot..and the coffeepot..
I love, love, love these patterns for potholders. I don't believe this pattern is really old..but wasn't able to find date on package.I thought these were just the cutest things ever..and an added bonus is..there is a Sunbonnet Sue Potholder. Yayyyy
I will hafta show ya'll when I get one done....hmmmm, the panties? with the lace may be my first try. Are these panties????? or pantaloons??? or just "long drawers"?? lol
This one is called Stitch-A-Check..and it's a great chicken scratch/gingham stitch pattern book. The copyright is 1961..and it's a really good one. The instructions and patterns are clear and easy to follow...I wish we could all slow down, grab a rocking chair, some embroidery floss..and rock all the problems away..:)
Chinese Wheel Embroidery Book. I believe this is one of the prettiest embroidery patterns ever..and the stitches are basic. Wthe diagrams, anyone can zoom away with the patterns here. This one has a copyright of 1981...It may squeak in as being vintage..
The back cover of the Wheel Embroidery pattern book. Are these not some of the most gorgeous patterns? Now if I could only add more hours to my days...
Last, but not least is the Nosy Dog pattern. I believe it's Patty that loves all doggie things. If so, Patty this pattern is for you..:)
