::Vintage Embroidery::

I found a couple little treasures at the thrift store recently and after a couple of coats of hot pink paint and some good distressing...


I ended up with these...



1975 was scrawled on the back in pencil--about the same time I was learning to do this kind of work as a child.






The frames were cheap and poorly painted black--with a little school-bus yellow peeking through in places. I like them. Very happy and colorful. Very vintage. Very Sue!

I have also been making a few of these for a local charitable project. The pattern can be found here...





...only you'll have to add the <3 slip stitching on your own.

I am working on editing the pattern to include instructions for this little felted flower & button ring to the wristwarmer.






They are super easy and can be felted by hand. What do you think?
