Here's square 31 -- more of an assemblage of things than an embroidered square.
In keeping with my recent (and still somewhat surprising) focus on embroidery, I wanted to share with you my latest obsession: vintage embroidery transfer patterns. Not too long ago I bought a box of these, not exactly sure what I would find, or even what I would do with them. This week I took the time to go through the box, and here's just a little sample of what I found:
Seriously -- could these be any cuter? The tea set with faces? The dancing cutlery? The basket full of hearts? The love birds?! I just can't believe how awesome these are! I'm still not exactly sure how I'll use them. I think they are too fragile to try to use them as intended (iron-on transfers). Instead, I may use tracing paper to transfer the designs onto embroidery projects. Anyway, lots of fun to come, I think!
