Hey all,
I found this awesome vintage crafting book today at the op shop. It was $5 and was worth every cent!
I only just flicked through it from front to back and decided that I had to share. Grin
I will be scanning projects and posting them up on my blog

Here's a few pics I took to show you...







I wish I could knit me a pair of these funky legwarmers!

My mother had that book when I was a kid - I wonder if she still does? Maybe not though cause she moved house recently and chucked out loads of stuff that she didn't use anymore, I think I'll check.

I think you should live each day as if it is your last. Thats why I don't have any clean laundry, because, lets face it, who wants to wash clothes on the last day of their life?
