Happy Monday to everyone! I hope you had a lovely weekend and did something you loved.
On to our next guest for
The Love of Hand Embroidery.
I would like to welcome
Thank you so much for sharing with us today.
Hi there, my name is Maxine and I do not have a blog, but spend most of my mornings reading blogs. This has been a great pleasure being involved with "For the Love of Hand Embroidery". I read Jane's blog every day. Always a pleasure that is for sure.
Jane organized this adventure and sent all of us a great package of Presencia embroidery floss. For the people out there who have not tried Presencia go to Jane's shop and buy some. You most diffidently will not be disappointed.
I choose to do a red work Santa. This will be a table topper for the holidays. Just love the holidays don't you. I need to get it quilted and the put the binding on and it will be on top of my table. This pattern comes from the American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine. I only had the pattern so I can't tell you what issue it came out of, but it is a older issue.
The second project is a tea towel from Yesterdays Charm/Kitchen Grace. Just love the little boy and his dog they are so cute. I left the top edge of the ruffle raw, so it will fray when washed. It hangs in my kitchen for now.
And I had to show some vintage pillow cases. My husbands grandmother made them for us as a wedding gift over 52 years ago. They have never been used. Maybe I should put some pillows in the cases and show them off sitting on a bed.
My hat goes off to Jane for this fun experience.
Thank you Maxine, Your work is beautiful. And your pillowcases stunning! Yes, show them off! Thank you for being a guest today.
