I still haven't finished the November project so there won't be any voting for a December project. Instead I'm going to share some photos of the 1968 Gifts Galore book by Coats & Clark. The cover says "Accessories to Crochet or Knit" but it's mostly crochet. The front and back cover are in color and the inside is all black and white.
Here's the cover in all of it glory.
There a a few potholders, a sewing kit (that's the guy with the spool legs, three pin cushions, a handbag, a knitted belt and slippers in chartreuse. I'm kind of intrigued by the mouse pincushion - it has a little pocket for a tape measure!
Next weekend I'll be spending time with family so there won't be a post then. The following weekend I"ll share the back of the cover with you - there are even more pot holders and one of my favorite and very practical crocheted items. Hopefully I'll have the crocheted bed jacket done in late December.
Here's how far I am now:

I'm from Minnesota and have been crocheting since 2003. I inherited a box full of Workbasket Magazines from my mother-in-law and became obsessed with the vintage patterns.
