For obvious reasons (perfect shade of blue, flowing art nouveau lines!), I love this cover. It belongs to a book by a silk manufacturer and it offers embroidery, knitting and crochet projects:
Ford, Anna Grayson, ed., et al., Treatise on Embroidery, Crochet and Knitting with Illustrations, adapted to the use of M. Heminway & Sons’ Wash Silks (Oriental Dyes). New York, M. Heminway & Sons Silk Co., 1899.
You can browse and/or download it for free here. Here are some of my personal favorites:
Crochet designs for trims and edgings (yes, I'm still into crochet trims!)
all images are taken from Treatise on Embroidery, Crochet and Knitting with Illustrations
Thankyou! Lots of lovely needlepainting, including some classic roses :-)
(Now just for some time to do one!)
Finding the time is always difficult :-) I've never done needlepainting, but I'd love to give it a try!
Hey Machteld, dankjewel voor je lieve commentaren op creJJtion! Fijne zondag, liefs Maaike
met veel plezier gedaan :-)
