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.
