This pretty vintage "Mother" pillow cover was too nice to resist:
These happen to be fabric samples in five different colorways, with enough of each to use to make a pillow or something - and they're such a pretty floral pattern.
I couldn't resist the unfinished crewel work below on a purple background.
Oh, boy - don't know that I'm up for attempting to complete it on my own with no diagram.
Yes I could choose my own colors, but I'm not much good at embroidery of any kind.
It's a big one, measuring 23X28 inches:
I thought the scarf-like thing was a kerchief to wear on your head, but then I had the wild idea to tie it around the neck of this shirt and I kind of love the way it looks!
Perhaps that is what it was meant for, after all?
It was a quarter:
Bates one I found a while back.
Very similar to Bates, but this one is actually from Penney's.
Haven't tried to get them out yet, but if I can't, I like the idea of making pillows with that fringe around the edges.
I've simply got to do SOMETHING with the gorgeous thing!
