Elgiva book


Well it's been a quiet time here on the blog for a while!!! Not that I'm not busy but simply because I've had an invasion of 'small people' for the week!!! They've now gone home, sadly.

Sally has been keeping me busy too as I've been working on a couple of suggestions from her!!!  Gotta keep little sisters happy, eh?  All will be revealed in due course!!!

I'm showing you this today as I'll be listing it on Ebay sometime soon. Probably next week. It's that wonderful book by Elgiva Nicholls and is a 'rare breed'. A bit like me, I guess!!!!  This copy is in an immaculate condition and I couldn't resist buying it when I spotted it for sale.

  1. This book's a rare treasure; I have a copy, but it's far from immaculate!

    1. Oh, don't worry, Marilee. I have my own signed copy from when I met Elgiva way back in 1976 or thereabouts. That I will never part with.

  6. You will let us know the moment you list it, won't you? I am a huge fan of Elgiva Nicholls. Her book Tatting Technique and History was one of the first tatting books I ever bought, and I learned so much reading it over and over again! I'd love to get my hands on this one!

I beg your pardon? I didn't quite catch what you said.
