Well would you all like to turn the pages a little in each one. I have not included number 3 as that is the one I already had and there has already, as you know, been a blog on it....
So here is Book number one which is Flowers
and as you can see the transfers are all there. I have just taken a few shots of some pages for you to look at.
Then there is book number 2 which is Toy Animals with lambs, chicks bursting from eggs, bunnies,
penquins, dogs and pelicans as well ..... There are suggested colours from anchor threads as in book three that I have which if you remember was Birds .. These are a delightful series and originally they were 1d each ...
Book number four is about Sports and again has all the complete transfers in that the original owner never used. There are Cars, Planes, Greyhounds, Beach ball in water, Tennis and boats. Along with the same colour suggestions for the embroidery of them on bags or shirts ..
Book number five is Fruit and Flowers and there is bouquet tied of flowers, four leaf clovers, then one that I can not quiet place more of a flower pattern I think, grapes, apples and flowers in a vase ...
What do you think (photo bottom left) a pattern of floral?
Book number six is Animals and there are fish, horse heads, squirrels, horse shoes, cats and cockerels ... Saying that you can symbolize your personality on your clothes or household linens ..
Book number seven is Individual Interests and if you can remember I was very keen to find this one because of the ballet dancer which is pictured in book 3 with the letter S and I thought that would be a great one to stitch for me. So in this book there are ballet dancers, windmills, lady with flowers, boats with a dragon head front, music notes and anchors.
I am so happy I have them all now but particularly Book number 7!
And lastly to complete the set Book number eight which is Popular Subjects which have flower open border, hiker, grapes, sailor, thistles and soldier marching...
They are dear little pamphlet embroidery transfer books and obviously in conjunction with Anchor threads. I am so very happy and love looking through them and hope you have as well.
So I will leave you with a picture of an S with a ballet dancer, and get on with my stitching. I had the most wonderful weekend at Eridge and had so much fun and laughter as well as enjoyable treasure hunt and wander around. I will bring all the fun of the fair to you later in the week when I have collated all the photos that I took for you.
Have a great day and as always Happy Stitching!
