Ode To Needlework

I ran across the most amazing book at the library yesterday, and even though I’ve only skimmed it, it’s already on my wishlist.  It’s the Complete Encyclopedia Of Needlework: Anniversary Edition.  First published in 1884 by Therese De Dillmont, the Complete Encyclopedia contains everything there is to know about sewing, mending, knitting, crocheting, tatting, macrame, lace making, and embroidery.  It is quite the exhaustive work!

And as if I needed new ideas or projects, I am now inspired to try needlework.  Good thing my sister has a bunch of embroidery floss I can use.
