Mrs Beeton - a heads up




"The Works" (discount book store) is selling reprints of "Mrs Beeton's Book of Needlework" for £2.99 (was £12.99). Got mine at the Rugby (UK) branch - knitting, tatting, crochet, netting and lace. I know it's available online via the Gutenberg folks, but it's nice to have the book (some 590 odd pages) in my hand with illustrations. Fantastic vintage resource if you like antique methods and designs. They are selling a few books of hers, I think.

This isn't Mrs. Betton of the Household Management is it? Wanna get me one and send it to me? :) I grew up with her.
