Thrift Store Find

DH and I went to a thrift store and I thought I had hit the jackpot when my eyes spied a box full of Magic Crochet and Decorative Crochet magazines and Annie's Attic leaflets. I started scrounging through the box and they were all water damaged. Rats! But, I looked through them all and picked out the better of them. When I got them home I cut out the patterns I really wanted and put them in plastic sleeves. There was one pattern for a doily I had been looking for so all was not lost.

Isn't it fun looking through old patterns? Too bad some of them were water damaged; I once bought a very old, tattered crochet book at a garage sale, brought it home and copied it down by hand; this was many years ago (around 1984, I think), before I had a computor much less a scanner. Then I threw it away because it stank. The things we do for love!
