The caption under this one says...Under these circumstances knitting progresses slowly.
This book is a dear little gem, full of ideas, suggestions and instructions on needlework and stitchery. It also has lots of advertisements for all manner of goods that you could buy in 1914.
I was so thrilled to receive this book, it even has some poetry and quotes.
I rather like this one :
He who is silent is forgotten, he who does not advance falls back, he who stops is overwhelmed, distanced, crushed; he who ceases to grow greater becomes smaller; he who leaves off, gives up....H.F.Amiel
