My picture domino obsession - Jane Foster

I've an obsession with vintage picture dominoes - here are a few snap shots of just a few examples I have in my vast collection and what I've done with some of them. They date from the 50s, 60s and 70s. I've included a few projects in my latest book Creative Craft With Kids available here.

Jane, these are wonderful. It's the kind of thing I always hope to find on my charity shop expeditions but never do. I have your Fun with Fabric book and love it - the round corners and the whole feel of the book make it a very rewarding browse! I have the Kids Craft book on my Amazon wish list :)
