This should certainly encourage me to clean out my stash more often! I was digging through some very old stash that was tucked away in a drawer and really just tossing most of it away. But I picked this booklet up again when I spotted a tiny wee red schoolhouse at the bottom and recognized it as the Prairie Schooler symbol. Its an old leaflet that was released by McCall's in 1994 called "Best of the Barn". Of course this was bought in my very early stitching days and long before I even thought about 'designers' who create these wonderful patterns.
The funny part too I had actually stitched the 'sheep' design but stitched it on a tiny piece of aida cloth, that only left less than 1/2" all the way around the edges.
This is certainly going to make me pay more attention to old leaflets and magazines, who's to know what other treasures there might be?
So needless to say, I retrieved this lovely old leaflet out of my donation pile and it now has a nice new home in amongst its fellow PS charts. May be one day I'll even stitch it!
