I'm so glad I found this!

I purchased this book on a whim from a local bookstore and I'm so glad I did! It's a wonderful little book. I started embroidering my own dish towels a few years ago, a tradition that I knew went back to the 1930s. This book has given me a new appreciation for my craft, although it must be pointed out that the book is more about the tradition of kitchen linens than about specific how-tos. It is beautifully photographed and very inspiring, and I love the vintage iron on transfers included in the back of the book.

What a lovely book!

Thank you Ellynanne for another beautiful treasure in book form. You made me more aware of the value of these vintage linens and how timely! I just found some embroidered linens in my mother's things. After she passed away in Oct '08, I have been slow in going thru her things. I decided to do one box at a time and I found these lovely linens (table scarves - why dont we use these any more??) starched and folded just so. I thank you again for a lovely book!
