An Embroidery Pattern Book

     Sharon from Pintangle posted about a book that she found on the Internet Archive: An Embroidery Pattern Book by Mary Waring. The hedgehog and mouse from page 119 of the book are particularly cute.  This page is also reproduced on Sharon's page.  Pages with larger animals (deer, lamb, pig) and other animals (frog, lizard, coiled snake) were not reproduced on Pintangle.  Pages 130 - 133 of the book show some Interlaced Knotwork patterns.  This book also has a page at Open Library where you can download a PDF.

    I am posting this partly so I can find it later. I enjoyed looking at the patterns in this book.
