Two samples of beautiful embroidery on silk. Victorian or Edwardian, I believe they were usually made as gifts or tokens. Handkerchief size ,the first is a little larger, unfortunately the color has bled a bit. Just look at that scalloped edge. Fine, dense work.
There are some super embroiderers in blogland still stitching. Linda in Australia, Karen in England, are amongst many, both are regular reads of mine that I look forward to and a blog I found today Shawkle.
I'm afraid I am very behind on promoting some imaginative treasuries that have featured some of my vintage scarves in my etsy shop.. Everyone seems to be looking towards warmer times.
First up, Destination: anywhere warm, actually, this is not the vintage scarf featured, because that souvenir scarf sold!! (to see it, look at the treasury) so I substituted this little number from Greece. Thank you SweetClothesOf Mine, please use my items again!
everywednesday, who has a cute vintage clothing shop, put together Walking on Sunshine, using this 70s silk.
