A little old-fashioned embroidery....

It all started when I was out and about Blogland when I came across a new-to-me blog called Giggleface Studios.  I loved Tracey's embroidery things and especially her tinted embroideries.  You must go take a look-see at the embroidered and tinted state blocks she's doing.  Wonderful!   Anyway, I saw something tucked away in her little green suitcase that I just had to try!  Ric-rac flowers with embroidery. Well, I did it.  And here they are.....



This was so much fun that I'm going to try it again.  I have a few packets of Aunt Betty's old ric-rac -- probably from 1940 or so -- and I'm just going to use it.  Wouldn't she love these?

Thanks for the inspiration Tracey!

  4. These turned out fantastic! You beat me to it though, so I guess this means you need to make a tutorial :)

  5. Awwww, beautiful!
    Embroidery always flashes me back to my childhood. Mom and Grandma's dishtowels were always embroidered.

    Wedding showers at our church still bring out the embroidery by the older ladies. I wish I had been married there, I'd have a set done by those dear ones.
