St Michael book of Handicrafts

I love the 70's - the best people were born then - so when I spotted this book in the charity shop I knew it had to come home with me. And it was on buy one get one free so I was thrilled!

The cover alone drew me to it! I haven't photographed the inside of the book yet so these pictures of the covers will have to do!

I love the donkey/horse thing - great colours and the way the work is shown off appeals to me too.

The lion at the back is cute and I think the bride and groom are made from toilet roll tubes!

I love this stool top - the design and the colours.

I love the pattern of this cushion too. I'd spotted a quilt top that Badskirt has made and I've been seeing them all over since!

That looks like such a great book!

Though the best people were born in the 80s, obviously ;)

The 70's were definitely the best!
Especially the fashions and the crafts.

Oh gosh! I think that book is a great find. I'm totally diggin' everything on the cover. Used books are the crafters best friend.

I bought that book recently at a charity book sale. There are some great things in it

Wow - my mum owns that book! I used to love looking through it and it has some lovely projects. Definitely going to have to dig it out. :) Thanks for the reminder.
