My friend and I went along today (6/9/12) to have a look. We were able to reminisce about the embroideries we did in our younger days, and the ones that we remember our mothers doing. I will have to go through the cupboards and see what we still have - not that I could bear to part with them, I'll just remember doing them. Maybe we'll use them again.
Of interest to me was this apron. It reminded me that Coo-ee (you can read about it here) has been around for quite a while - there was even a written record of it at the Napoleon exhibition at the National Gallery Victoria.
There were some lovely other pieces too.
|This was lovely. Apparently it was done by an 83 year old lady, not all that long ago.|
|I remember seeing these sets, all ready to be embroidered and crocheted.|
