I know your not surprised that I have a Collection of The Workbasket Magazines,
but you probably will be astonished that I was featured in
Number 12, Volume 27 published in September, 1962.
I'll get to that in a minute....maybe two....so hang with me while I make my Basket Case.
Did you know that The Workbasket has been around since 1935?
Originally it was called Aunt Martha's Workbasket.
Very early this morning while having coffee and digging through a basket of buttons to embellish the Pumpkin Coasters I've been Crocheting, I ran across another basket of Workbasket Magazines. Have you noticed how often the word 'Basket' appears in this post? It's kind of a thing with me....Basket Collecting...that is! And of course I USE them to hold Collections of Yarn, Fabric, Notions, WIP's (works in progress), more Yarn, etc. etc. etc....you get the picture!
Anyway, in the basket of buttons I found an old Smuckers jar of Vintage Buttons that will work great on the Pumpkin Coasters. Not that they have a thing to do with Aunt Martha's Workbasket from 1962, but it is just another of the examples of my morning 'Multi-Tasking-Caffine Basket Case Thingy', and I thought you might like to see some of the buttons that were available to Aunt Martha back in 1935. Oh, and some of the fabrics, too. My work baskets work well on the 1930's quilt that covers the table where I work...notice how often the word work appears in this post? Too much caffine or is it the basket case thingy!
In 1962, I was a Teenager...15 to be exact...and I had just learned to crochet in Homemaking Class.
If I'd have known about The Workbasket back then,
I'd have made this Teen-Age Sue Pillow!
BeBopASueLa....I may make it yet!
