60s Cookery Book Illustrations





I'm the world's worst cook but love looking at old cookery book illustrations! This fabulous book dates from 1969.

Juvenile 70s retro fabric quilt by Jane Foster




Half term is supposed to be relaxing and not staying up to the early hours making quilts!! (I'm joking as I loved doing this!) I get quite obsessed about finishing a project once I've started it. This is another quilt for my daughter - it's made from a panel of 70s children's curtains and lots of retro cottons. The outer edge is a wide strip of striped ticking. I'm happy to take commissions on these if anyone wants one. (I've enough fabric to make two more similar)
