Today I received a parcel in the post from my friend Linda. I have never had hand knitted socks before and these are gorgeous, warm and comfortable. Linda and I have been friends for several years although we have only spent time together on two occasions. Our love of textiles, photography and the countryside underpins our friendship and I will treasure these socks.
Yesterday I also received a gift from a friend. Norma and her husband John are preparing to move home and when we caught up on Sunday Norma mentioned that there were a few things that she had put aside for me - would I like to pick them up before they move? There were threads and needle and scissors and a very old book. The book had been passed down to Norma from her mother and is very old.
I am looking forward to reading this book and it will be passed down to someone who will appreciate and love it.
Do you have any old needlework books that you treasure?
