It’s Cursed! Cursed I tell you!!

Do you ever start a project, or a meal, and from start to finish it is just cursed? Just every little thing that can go wrong does, and what should be quick and/or easy take forever or is very hands on. That happened to me Sunday…

I’ve Been Hooking- Rug Hooking

I promised to try rug hooking this month and I did! The February 1967 issue featured an article on rug hooking purses, and the sample was cute! I’ve wanted to try rug hooking for several months and already had a frame, and then recently got some…

Kid Approved Gingerbread Pancakes

One feature in many Workbasket issues with “With The Cooks,” which has a variety of recipes on a similar theme. This February 1967 issue the theme was pancakes! I know to some people pancakes are a weekend food, but not to us. We’re as likely to…

It’s round! It’s flat! It’s…

Another potholder! Or as the magazine calls it a dish mat. And I’m super in love with it. It’s beautiful, fun, colorful, and quick! This complete project took just a few hours. I didn’t time myself, but maybe 3ish hours, total. It had some neat techniques,…

National Chocolate Cake Day

I woke up this morning and during my caffeination time Facebook scrolling I saw that it is National Chocolate Cake Day! How handy! For one, we always have fun dinner with a special dessert on Friday. For two, the January 1967 issue I’m currently doing had…

Wooden Tools

My love of vintage doesn’t stop with just magazines, or textiles, or housewares, it really just goes on and on. I also love and tend to acquire vintage craft tools.I often  browse ebay for random lots of vintage supplies. Sometimes I get a real winner. Recently…
