Awhile back at an estate sale I bought a box of vintage linens, with sweet treasures that were waiting so patiently to be loved once again. This box had my name written all over it! :) I thought you would enjoy seeing some of these most lovely treasures!
I just adore vintage embroidery, and this sweet tea towel makes me smile every time I look at it. I have it hanging in my craft room for daily inspiration!
Love the spring colors, and precious details, especially the twist in the little towels or blankets.
These are some adorable embroidered Vogart kiddie quilt blocks.
What a cute turtle!
This little animal hanging is so cute, but I am not sure what it is. What do you think?
Sweet bunny for Easter!
I have tried searching for more of these kiddie quilt blocks, but so far I have had no luck. I am sure they will pop up again at another estate sale!
Loving the mittens on the kitty, and the marching bear and his flag!
Sweet squirrel nibbling away on its acorn.
I wish I could have met the wonderful lady whose hands did all this beautiful embroidery work!
I am planning making small patchwork quilt, using some children's 30's reproduction fabric. I need to finish the embroidery on a few of them, and then I will start piecing the quilt. I will keep you posted on my progress. :)
The last three quilt blocks are a little different from the other ones, but are so sweet, and unfinished. Yay, another project! I am looking forward to completing them, but I need to find some instructions on how to do it. I am thinking I can just start embroidering, but not sure! Let me know if you have ever embroidered one of these vintage blocks. :)
Of course, I have to end with some pretty hankies, and a cross-stitch towel I bought at a new little antique shop over the weekend. I can never say no to hankies. They get me every time! :)
I hope you have a most lovely and crafty week!
