Year of Stitches

Today I went to the Aladdins Collectables fair and purchased some vintage lacy small appliqués. I have added some to this weeks stitching.

I also bought some unfinished transfer embroideries and a totally cutable doiley,which has stains but not on the actual embroidery. I will make hexagons out of the small floral embroidered bits scattered over it. Also got some lace , some white covered buttons and a beautifully mended hand made baby dress. It has grub roses and smocking on it, lace edges and small holes. But the mending speaks volumes, of repair , saving, hand me down, cherishing and the evidence of women's work, the hand of the maker in the process.
