Like so many other women, I just love the embroidered work done on vintage linens. I don't have a huge collection, but I have some favorites that I am using so I get to see them every day! Like this one with gorgeous rose appliques:
The pretty lady below is on the front of a bag I found in Jamestown. The vintage embroidery thread and pink and blue ribbon bows were here in the house.

And the iris is one of my (very few)attempts at doing something of my own. This was on the back of a chambray denim shirt that was worn at a Sadie Hawkins Dance in high school! The shirt finally wore out completely, but I am determined to put my iris on a pillow or something someday!
I'm certainly no expert, but I was so proud of it back then.
