Books: Gladys Windsor Fry, Embroidery and Needlework

This is another of my "classic" tomes. I can spend hours just browsing in these books.This is a teacozy and placemat set. It's just so 1920s!This book is in color, with color stitch illustrations and numerous tipped-in color plates. I think the stitch illustrations are especially clear. I don't have the history with this book that I do with Samplers and Stitches, but this one just makes me happy. It's very colorful and lively. I love the samples with the needle still there, in progress. I have a more from this era but these two are the only ones I got pix of this weekend. The rest will have to wait until after I return.
