For The Love of Hand Embroidery - December~

In this treasured quilt each block was embroidered,
then hand-stitched together.

I need to find some a little yellow to
repair some of the worn parts especially on the binding.
It is  backed with a thick, cozy flannel sheet 
which is doubled for warmth!

My Grandma Bea made one of me
and one for my sister.
It is very old and fragile, so I didn't force the iron--
but, through all of these years, her artwork still remains!

Only two more weeks before Jane's
Embroidery Ladies are finished showing 
their work.

Happy Stitching.....


  1. Love this! A dear friend of my mother's hand embroidered and made a baby quilt for me when I was pregnant with my son (he was born in 1976). I recently passed it on to him when his wife was pregnant with their son. What a treasure. :) blessings, marlene
