It's that most wonderful time of the week again...yayyyyyy...it's Vintage Things Thursday. That lovely time when we all go visit Suzanne at Colorado Lady
and see what all the vintage wonders are this time. Come on..I can't wait to see...............
This is a post combining two of my vintage loves....Sunbonnet Sue,Hannah and Sarah....looking beautiful in embroidery......... and Chicken Scratch Embroidery.
We begin with the girls..Sunbonnet Sue,Hannah and Sarah. May,Molly,Elizabeth and a few other girls could not make it today... their mothers had other chores and plans for the girls. After grandfather plowed up some ground for them..the girls planted some flower seeds that was supposed to grow tall,tall,tall. And here we find the three girls, in their magic secret garden that is taller than themselves.
While the smaller girls are playing..the bigger girls are playing as well. They were making pretty aprons, quilts and pillows doing a stitch called Chicken Scratch. It was said that it was called that because some of the stitches looked like chicken scratching. :)
This is a pretty pillow form, put into a large hoop...I already have a very large pillow cover with the same color gingham and the same basic pattern. When I came across this at a thrift store..I just had to have it.
I love this stitching on gingham...it goes way back..and soon, I'm gonna do a post on this almost lost/given up on crafts. I so hate to see any of the needle arts go by the wayside.
