Vintage Embroidery goodies from blogland

Last month, I was the lucky winner of an anniversary giveaway on Sweet Bee's blog. She's got some great vintage embroidery stuff going on over there. Be sure to check it out.

I received my package recently and have been late getting pictures. It was such a delightful package to open and go through!

Look at those awesome embroidered buttons. Lazy Daisies are one of my favorite stitches, and I love the tiny detail on these. I've got to try making some of these some day! And that pin cushion is adorable! I tried making a little segmented pin cushion like this once. Um .... let's just say "wonky" would be an understatement. Hers is perfect. :)

And then some fabulous vintage embroidery transfers. These are just some peeks at my favorite little pieces.

Thank you, Sweet Bee, for a fabulous gift! :)


  1. Is this what you were working on last night? I wanted to talk with you, but we were cut off by the noise level and the seating. I always sit in that same spot when I go to Rio Rita b/c the majority of the other crafters who take to the tables are knitters. I'm not, so I might feel like a poser if I went over!

  2. What a joy that must have been-beautiful

  3. The peacock would be so beautiful, and a lot of work.

    I passed on an award to you. If your interested in playing along, visit my blog for details.

  4. I really like the sea horse! And the embroidered buttons!!! Awesome.

  5. The buttons are adorable! Great stuff. Where did you get that great skull & scissor fabric (tablecloth)? It's awesome!

  6. Oh I love the little buttons! And that peacock transfer is out of control cool!

  7. Hello!
