A New Month & New Treasure

As promised here are some pictures of the book I found on the sale table at our last EG meeting.


The front cover












This is the back cover - I love the stylised DMC motif

Model pictures ~ my favourite is Mod 6
More model pictures ~ I particularly like the edging on the right
and finally some stitch diagrams.
I'm not sure that there will be any practical application from owning this particular book ~ aside from the fact that my capabilities with the french language would have to be considerably improved ~ it's just lovely to pick up and look at from time to time.  At some point all the items on the EG sales table have been treasured by their previous owners ~ I am happy to be the new owner of this little treasure. 
Have you recited your white rabbits for the 1st of the month?

That is lovely Kate. The patterns look as if you might be able to use them as inspiration for Hardanger
