thursday = embroidery

thank you all for your comments & thoughts regarding the whole copyright situation. there were many points made that I thought were very interesting but when it comes right down to it I'm just not comfortable posting vintage publications here anymore.

also, I'm so happy to hear that so many of you appreciated what I posted & your thanks for sharing...that was really sweet, thank you. I did enjoy doing it & am going to miss it.

it will be interesting to see how this space evolves & me along with it...I hope you will continue to drop by & say hi.

enough with that...lets move forward & get our embroidery on!



*I'm going to continue to post embroidery transfers {although, not Vogart of course!} since I'm pretty sure there is no copyright issues with the older patterns. I'm not sure if I'll have enough to post them every week but I'll do what I can.

also, I got the new anthropologie catalog the other day & found this image very inspiring, stitchy wise:

I found your blog through Feeling Stitchy Love your work and all the free bees, I love to embroider, and right now I'm doing a project that my daughter illustrated. I'll be checking in to your blog often :)

You find the best old transfers!

I understand your concern over copyrights, but I honestly don't think anything could happen to you for having posted the Vogart transfers. It's not the same as reproducing and selling them.

I completely understand your decision--although I wish that it wasn't an issue and you could continue to share your amazing finds freely. Regardless, I will continue to read your blog and be inspired I'm quite sure!

You couldn't get me to stop reading your blog. You could share gnome items every day & I would still be happy. I love gnomes as much as you do. Can't wait to see how your blog evolves. I still hope you share your thrift store finds. That how I found your blog.

I love that birdcage pillow!

I'm interested to see what you come up with and will continue to stop by what is one of my FAVORITE blogs!

I was just in Anthropologie the other day and noticed a lot of embroidered goodies, including tea towels and monogrammed napkins! very vintage looking too!

I think your blog is wonderful and I will for sure keep checking in everyday. I do hope that you continue to share your thrifty finds and the things you make from them. You have inspired so many of us readers to look at items differently-creatively-as components for something new and unique:) Have A Great Weekend!
