Here's a contrast to today's mindblowing multi-coloured onslaught on the senses. 
Back to a time when Needlework Illustrated carried these delightful advertisements (1947 to be exact)

Ah yes, I remember it well! I'm not that old(?) but a lot of this type of stuff was in my Ma's pattern pile.

Those are great - I'm similarly addicted myself...

I love 'vintage' craft mags and spend at least as long perusing the ads as I do resisting the impulse to embroider covers for budgie cages / knit cummerbunds / make balaclavas out of old blankets.
