I have just finished the Kokeshi Doll kit that came with the current issue of Cross Stitcher Magazine. It was very quick and easy to work and I thought I might use it for a birthday card or possibly made up into a gift, I haven't decided yet. I recently found this copy of Needlewoman and Needlecraft magazine from 1959 in a thrift shop for just 50p. It is in good condition and still has the original embroidery transfer inside. Some of the projects would still look good today such as the bird in a cage peg bag below.
