Poty – Les Ouvrages Liturgiques No. 1 Actually, this was one from my own collection, and it looked so nice when first seen.

2018-10-09 Seven piece basket set in crochet added

NEW PUBLICATIONS Go to http://www.antiquepatternlibrary.org to see the new publications. I have changed the programming to make the most recent publication the top one.

But in the meantime this publication was already […]
