NEW PUBLICATIONS http://www.antiquepatternlibrary.org/html/warm/G-TP010.htm Another item from the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, a garland of roses in many colors.  When charting this one, I discovered that PC Stitch can set the original image as background, and project the charted pattern over it. That speeds up charting a good deal. Of course, the resolution is […]

CURRENT STATE OF TECHNOLOGY The wifi connection strength is so-so, and I’m happy that I uploaded most of the image files before going on holiday. Actually, last week was mostly getting my laptop to work with the programs that run on my home computer – and then having to install Java 8 – and then […]

THREE NEW PUBLICATIONS   http://www.antiquepatternlibrary.org/html/warm/D-YS044.htm   This is one of a set of pattern supplements of a French publication, La Mode Pratique. Actually, it hasn’t even been scanned yet, I edited the preliminary photographs, because I could not find the scans, nor the original paper. I’d add a photograph of my storage room, but then […]

Wijnsma Seven new publications (and some not entirely new, but not yet mentioned)PUBLICATIONS on our news page We’ve had the great good luck of getting permission of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, to chart and publish all their embroidery patterns. And also some of their embroideries, though […]

2016 APL 2016-02-11 Two new publications.

PUBLICATIONS Adding the third would have meant a delay of some days, and I want to keep to a regular schedule. If we can publish something each week, it works better than publishing a lot once every two months. Judith told me after editing this weeks first publication that there were so many letters, that […]

Thank you all!From the […]

First, a beaded rondel. I don’t know the style of the design, but I do rather like it. After obtaining permission from the seller, I put a bid on it (don’t tell on me, please) and it so happened that I won it. But the strange thing is, the ebay photos were much better than […]

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 […]
