2015 APL Two new publications 30-09-2015

Dear me, this is getting to be a very long letter. Does anybody actually read it to the end? PUBLICATIONS This time, we start off with an old and timeworn footstool. The images are a donation of ebay seller jennysfrenchboudoir. Although the embroidery is somewhat damaged, the pattern could be reconstructed easily from those nice […]

2015 APL Three new publications 11-09-2015

After a somewhat unplanned hiatus in the publishing schedule, here we go again. Three new publications and it could have been more, but then I’d have been even later. PUBLICATIONS The first publication is the Corticelli Yarn Book no. 8. It was donated by Mary Craver, and has lain a while on the shelf, but […]

2015 APL: Three new publications on 2015-07-26

The first publication is a Berlin woolwork pattern. Iva Innocenti donated the scan, and Steven Stephan made a color chart and a symbol chart for it. Actually, the roses are only half of the donated pattern, but the other half is a bit more difficult to work out and it will follow later. Because Steven […]

2015 I am much too old to be doing this!

Another housebound video from Lauren’s Place. The video is not housebound. The performer is. The performance is comedy, but the video shows that no one is housebound is a virtual world.

2015 APL: Three new publications on 2015-07-06

Reminder: If you have a lovely item of needlework, from which a pattern could be reconstructed, you might consider taking proper pictures and let us have them, with permission to publish. That’s what I’m asking of ebay sellers who have an item that’s too expensive for us (or just too big to ship, like a […]

2015 APL : Three new publications on 2015-06-14

Before I get into the new publications, another remark first (just to make sure everybody reads it, since not everybody reaches the last paragraph. Actually, do read the last paragraph this time…) If you have a lovely item of needlework, from which a pattern could be reconstructed, you might consider taking proper pictures and let […]

2015 APL: Three new publications on 2015-06-08

This week, again three new publications. It looks like I’d best return to the two/three publications at-a-time schedule. There’s more stuff in the pipeline – let’s see if we can at least keep going at this rate. PUBLICATIONS The first on the list is an ebay donation, of antiquesandmooresales, of a very lovely beadwork panel. […]

2015 APL: Three new publications on 2014-04-28

This week, only three new publications – sorry, there have been too many other things interfering.  But they are three lovely ones, and I hope they inspire people to take up a needle and thread – or a blackboard chalk. PUBLICATIONS The first on the list is Cusack’s Blackboard Drawing. It’s a training course for […]
