For The Love of Hand Embroidery~

Jane came up with a fun idea this summer
and I asked if I could join the party.

I enjoy a good time, and think this will be one! 

Each Monday there will be someone sharing 
hand embroidery.

Today is Kris T 's turn.
Please hop over to her blog to take a look!

This is the bottom half of a vintage quilt I rescued from a under a pile at
an antique store.
Someone spent a lot of time lovingly working on the stitches..
quilting and embroidery.
I think the embroidered quotes were free-hand, 
but the entire piece is hand-worked.

My photographer just returned to school (sad face),
so when I saw how she caught both her and I in this sunny day picture
I kept us together.....
