I made a couple more bags like the one I made for my sister. I'm planning to put these on Etsy as soon as we get that set up. We have a few other things we want to put on there as well. I took this picture in the front of my house. The bush is a crepe myrtle bush, which are wonderful in the Texas heat!During my time in Arkansas helping DS & DIL get their house ready to move into, I had some down time to work on my Polka Dot Girls stitcheries - while sitting with Jonah on the porch while he napped, driving home in the car, etc. I need to get some more traced to work on now.
Whoops! I just noticed that I forgot to put the yellow centers on the flowers under the teapot!
This is a set of pillowcases that my Mom embroidered probably 50 years ago or so. I found them in a drawer after she died. She enjoyed embroidering and she was really good at it. I wish I was as good with the satin stitch as she was! I would never do a buttonhole stitch border like this! These have never been used!
The second set of pillowcases were ones that my grandmother crocheted the border on. I have these on the bed in our guest room. They don't really get used to sleep on! I love having these old heirlooms from my family. My sister has more linens from my Mom that she said she might want to get rid of --- I said NO! She will save them for me to look at next time I visit her.
