  1. I would call that more than a nose, sir.

  2. Indeed.

    Sadly, I could come up with a witty title for this post.

    Dear readers, give me something better and I will change the post title.

  3. For title: how about "Must Credit INP Sound Photo" ?

    The embroidery on that magazine cover is awesome! I wonder what other projects are contained within? And I wonder how Mae Murdock (original recipient of the magazine) is related to the photo?

  4. I wonder if those ??? are "spts" - as in "1st page of the sports section"??

  5. Hm, you may be right about the sports part, Tricia.

  6. I have a huge soft spot for old needlcraft magazines, and love horses as well! I also wanted to let you know the books arrived safely and soundly :-}

  7. Very glad to hear that, Diana.

    And no, I don't normally talk to myself.

  8. Hey, you gotta talk to someone intelligent once in a while! (learned that one from my dad :^)

  9. It looks like a print or reprint of a newspaper photo. I'd say the writing on the back "5 Col, Spt. 1st." etc. would be the specs for running it. Very nice.
