nana mail

Not too many hand written letters arrive in the post these days but every now and then I get a note and magazine clippings of crafty patterns from one of my nana's. I love it. This time I received a Christmas booklet containing patterns, recipes and other handmade gift ideas. 

I'm liking the colours of the two spreads above. 

Within this booklet there was mention of a book, Modern Soft Toy Making by Margaret Hutchings — written in 1959! After a bit of Google searching I discovered it's well out of print but secondhand versions are available on the interwebs. It looks like a super book for anyone interested in soft toy making, I'd love to get more of a glimpse of it's pages. One for the 'Wish List'!

What have you received in the post lately?
