Here is a beautiful collection of vintage stitchings given to me by my lovely friend Sue. Her mother (who has just sadly passed away) had these little gems hidden away in her house! An English patchwork and quilting magazine from the 70s, thread in jewel colours on wooden reels, needles from the 50s, a very tiny thimble, a glazed fabric tape measure, a little sewing box, and some amazing embroidery. Here is a closer look.
Lovely soft colours stitched on linen.
Hours of work have gone into this, but it needs a little finishing off.
These little flowers just sparkle against a chocolate brown linen background.
This is similar to the brown linen but has been stitched on black velvet.
What can I do with them all? Any suggestions?
