It was a good year, Canada made their nickel round again; the Fab Four had their first recording session; the movie Mutiny on the Bounty had just come out; everyone was singing “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” well everyone except my parents, only one of them had been born yet, and probably wasn’t singing much of anything; and subscribers who had paid their $1.50 annual fee ($2.50 for canada) had this issue delivered!
This issue really shows why I love these old magazines! The projects are lovely, the ads range from beautiful to hilarious, and I can just sit with a stack of them for hours, reading, laughing, and making.
The list of hopeful projects for this month is quite long. Here’s just a few of the things I intend to make:
This issue has one of my favorite features, “Women Who Make Sense,” which has quick crafts intended for sale or bazaars. I hope to do at least one of the crafts from there, or at least tell you about them.
The ads this month are just golden! I’ll be doing an entire post of my favorites.
There is also a large article on huck weaving, so I’ll be giving that a try. This issue even has the gardening section I love, so you’ll be seeing some of my plants and yard hopefully.
There is 17 recipes, mostly Thanksgiving or turkey leftovers related, so I’ll be doing some of those.
If you’re not familiar with this magazine I think this issue will really show you why people still collect it all these years later, and why I wanted to do this blog. If you’re familiar with the Workbasket, I think you’ll really enjoy following along this month! If you have this issue pull it out and do a project! I’d love to see it.
