Luggage, Knit/Crochet, Embroidery, and Bargello Junk Love



I actually acquired this vintage luggage for skates through Freecycle.  It's perfect for MORE fabric stashes!




Bag of these lovely knitted? or crocheted? scarf and squares in cotton!  I think they're crocheted.  I love collecting projects from unknown artists (quilters, crafters, sewists, etc.)!  The challenge is to find out what they might have been creating and making your own version!





Vintage cross-stitch and embroidery transfer patterns.


Vintage apron sewing pattern.


My husband found this one.  He's heard my conversation on Bargello quilts, however, this book is about Bargello needlework!  Interesting book.

Now, back to school work for myself and the children...

Peace and Junk Love!

So fabulous....anxious to see crochet instructions. We should rest up, because when it's discovered/figured out...
Then there'll be so much loss of sleep.
