thursday = embroidery

today I'm not only back to my regular schedule of sharing a weekly vintage embroidery pattern but also I finally have a finished project to share...feels like forever since that's happened!


the overall piece is 14" x 16" and was done with a 2 strand stem stitch - I created the line drawing from a photograph using illustrator.


{also, here's a bit about tom coffey if you're curious.}

and finally here are some pretty spring flowers for you:


happy stitching!
