2 posts for the price of one

I was just adding my embroidery links to the right over there and I wanted to highlight an interesting source for embroidery designs.


I don't know how I found this website, but its called exceedingly curious. Its 254 pages from a public domain embroidery stamping pattern catalog from 1886 by J.F. Ingalls.


Now I just need to figure out how to function with no sleep so I can actually get some embroidery done...

Thanks for the link to Exceedingly Curious - this is quite the little treasure trove of exquisite designs!

New to your blog - love it - I'll be back.

I agree, sometimes I end up stitching with my eyes half shut!!

I did make the woman ironing from the Ingalls patterns...
