thursday = embroidery

whenever I travel I make sure to plan ahead & get some projects together to bring with me. on this trip my destination provided inspiration for one of the projects I brought along:


the heart is appliqued onto the state & both were in turn appliqued onto a piece of linen. I used a sharpie paint pen to fill in the letters & painted the hoop.


this week's vintage embroidery has nothing to do with traveling or my hometown, I just thought it was nice:


happy stitching!

I've done that pattern for the project a couple of times as pillow cases. It works really well on ecru cases with pinks and lavender colors for the flowers and dark green leaves. Just a suggestion.

Might also try on guest towels.
