A couple of weeks ago lovely Carolyn at Clenbar Cottage mentioned this wonderful book in a post and so I got my copy off the book shelf and have spent the last week or so re-reading it.
What a treasure! It was written in the bi-centennial year and is a record and celebration of women's contribution to the decorative arts in the first 200 years of European settlement in Australian.
I remember adoring it when I purchased it all those years ago but I didn't sew in those days so I viewed it with different eyes this time. It is truly wonderful. Occasionally it turns up in op shops and second hand book shops and if you see it - grab it, I'm sure you will love it too.
Do you have something to share as part of Tuesday Treasures. It can be a thing, a person or a place. An idea, a dream or a concept. Anything you'd like. Just pop your details into Mr Linky and join in the fun.
Hi Tanya, I'm still having trouble getting back to you. Please email me so I can see your Tuesday Treasure and say thank you for playing along.
