...gotta love a good read.
or, in my case,
gotta love the books filled with inspirational photographs of early needlework
from the collection of
while living in CT, where I grew up,
I was fortunate to find the set of books from a dealer.
the set cost me a mere 30.00
and by today's standards that was a bargain....
I was doing some research on Betty Ring's collection,
and found out that these books are now appraised at over 200.00 each!
a pleasant suprise for sure :)
I stitched this sampler below, back in 1997 using inspiration from these books:
how things have changed!
...do any of you have these books??
