It's that time again !!!!! Yay for my favorite day of the week. I love looking at all the beautiful vintage things that everyone shows... Thank you to our lovely hostess,Suzanne, for all her hard work and for hosting us all. To see what all the vintage things to see..click on.. TheColoradoLady .There is a list of all the participants there so lets all go see..and then go visiting.
These beautiful dish towels were given to me not long ago,by my husband's physical therapist.At times,when we go for his visits, I will take some embroidery along, and stitch away to make the time pass a bit faster. Pam loves embroidery as much as I do,specially the vintage pieces. She said she had never was able to embroidery herself,but loved others work. Anyway, about a month ago, she brought these sweet little birdy dishtowels to therapy..and said she had 3 of the same set,and wanted me to have one of them. She told us that a former patients wife...(an 82 year old lady)had been making and selling the sets about 20 years ago,and she had bought 3 sets..
I thought these were the cutest days of the week ever. You wouldn't believe the teeny,teeny..teensy stitches she has made in her work.... and the back of her embroidery is as cleaned up and pretty as the front. Her work is just gorgeous.. and I can only wonder,how long she had been embroidering.
I love the set I have and will treasure it. Those sweet little birds defiantly have a good home with me. I should have taken pictures of the work to post,instead of scanning them in. The scanning has created shadows and it appears the dishtowels
need some laundering and sun drying. I will have to have another look at Suzannes method of cleaning old linens and aprons.
Have a Happy Vintage Things Thursday everyone and a wonderful weekend. Now I'm away to do more visiting everyone.
