"It takes ages to finish a quilt you're not working on!"

This is a lovely old book that I found on eBay. There is no date of publication printed, but somebody has left a magazine page tucked inside the cover, and that is dated 1948, so I can only assume the book would be more than 50 years old. The illustrations inside the book would date it even earlier. Anybody want to see more?

Wow, how precious! I love it when you find things slipped into old books. I put things in my books on purpose (pressed flowers, leaves, feathers, cute bookmarks etc) knowing that one day I'll get a little surprise. I'd love to see more too.

Oh dear. Just when so many people want to see something, my computer has spat the dummy and refuses to scan. The scanner is all set up and rarin' to go, but the computer just says "sorry, not initialized", whatever that means. Bloody thing was perfectly allright last night. So don't hold your breath, ladies - I will get around to it as soon as the computer is sorted out :-(
