Pattern Books To Play With ..... Vintage Things Thursday

Tis my favorite day of the week again...time to visit about and see all the beautiful vintage things that will be shown. To see all the pretties click on Suzannes name at ColoradoLady and let's go visiting....
       
A few of the pattern books I found on my last thrifting excursion. I must have gotten there after everyone had gone through the good things..cause these books, a few more,and 1 Pyrex casserole was all that's left. There was a couple more pattern books, but they,along with a Sunbonnet Sue needle case is making it's way to England to Do. Little pattern books range from 1974 to 1990.. the pattern below for the little chicks..I think is as cute as can be..and it doesn't get any easier. I have to find some styrofoam eggs and make some..I should have found this pattern while the Easter supplies were out and about.

  25. Hello CC, I love the patterns you shared today and the sweet crafts. I used to craft but haven't for a while now. My cousin did help me make a sweet heart card. It is called Iris Folding. Have you heard of it? It was easy and fun.

    I came over to tell you I am posting the awards and the meme tomorrow. I haven't forgotten. Thank you again for the awards. I am honored that you chose me.

    See you tomorrow.
    Love, Jeanne

  26. What wonderful vintage patterns!

  27. I have to say that I don't come across them often. Are pattern books readily available? How much are they valued at? Perhaps I just don't see them because I'm not looking for them. Now that I've seen your pretties, I will probably see them all over. Happy VTT.

  29. Those little chicks are way too cute. Maybe you can find some eggs on clearance? You could probably use little plastic eggs, too.
