I spent most of yesterday stitching madly to meet a deadline , making a special secrect block for someone special.
I can't show you what I was doing just yet for obvious reasons..
So here are some pics of old linen I picked up at the Good Sammy shop.
This first one looks like a waterlily to me, good buy at 50c.
The work on this pretty purple one is so amazing, the little purple flowers are little pieces of fabric that have been appliqued on and padded to make the flowers stand out.
All but the outside edge is hand worked. Another 50c well spent
This looks like it has one little doiley stitched on top of another, Rick-rack sewn around the outside and buttonholes around the smaller piece.
Can anyone tell me what this would have been used for?
This one looks machine done, but still a pretty rose doiley.
