The Patchwork Quilt and other poems
I had the luxury of charity shopping today. Our local shop has opened a ‘vintage floor’
their prices are very reasonable compared to other similar vintage shops or fairs!
Today I found a bargain for 99p..
A lovely book this edition is from 1973.
It is by published by longman, we learnt french at school with longman’s books.
Does anyone else remember learning “Longmans audio visual french” ?
We sat in booths with big headphones and repeated verbs and lines, and giggled.
I used to doodle/ design patterns on my book.
It was considered so high tech! my 12 year old would think it was something out of a museum today.
I think it is a very simple and touching poem.
The illustrations are by William Stobbs.
A prolific children’s illustrator who died in 2000.
As a lover of the printed pattern I think they are stunning.
I also found two victory Jigsaws. I like them.
I think Heidi lived here?
…..as you read this I will be sitting outside trying to figure it out…its a big one 800 pieces.
Do you know this blog was 2 years old yesterday?
