neat and tidy

8 March 2012

A current project I’m working on is documenting our family handwork, specifically the collection of vintage embroidery.  This includes work by my nana Shirley and her mother, and some other unknowns, maybe older family pieces, or work made by family friends.

This is one of my favourite sets, I love the beige colour, the composition of the the violets and the wide crochet boarder.

So simple, and the reverse of this piece is so perfect, you know the sewer was skilled.

See?  Not a thread loose.
