Vintage cross stitching



This were the very first craft books I had as a child. I did try to make things out of this books, but I remember it wasn't a big success. Somehow my work always ended up in a mess of threads.



I still like these books a lot, it's impossible to buy things like this anymore, or it has to be secondhand... Or japanese...
I guess people in Belgium do not have a need for craft books or magazines.

These are wonderful - I especially love the one with road signs and vintage car.

Thanks for leaving the comment on my blog. I will call the little bear Simmy, excellent idea!
I love your cross stitch books, especially the first picture with the dancing children - adorable! You're right that vintage craft books really hold many treasures!
