Vintage Embroidery by Me! I'm Old!

Yep!  It's true!  I'm old enough to have actually stitched vintage embroidery.  Makes me cringe and then I remember that I'm still alive! ~smile~
I've been stitching as long as I can remember!  Yes, I can still remember! LOL  This is the latest of the old.  The pattern was a gift from a friend and thinking I stitched it about 15 years ago.  It's a fun pattern and there were patterns for each month of the year.  Ima May---

The two below are pieces that I did as a child.  My mom taught me to embroider, sew and quilt. Of course, I learned all the other things that girls of the 50s and 60 learned--cooking, cleaning, babysitting, in preparation of becoming a wife and mother.  The things that would help the wife to make her house a home.  These were years that were closely tied to the previous years when these tasks were ALL that were learned by young girls.  Of course, by then I was also taught in school to read, write, mathmatics, sciences, along with music.
It tickles me to know that the hand/machine skills of embroidery, sewing,and quilting although they are not needed this day and time, but certainly they are enjoyed.  Instead of being considered a skill, they are a talent and only done by those who enjoy them.  I am certainly one of these.

Holly Hobbie--she is the faceless girl that followed in the footsteps of Sunbonnet Sue.  My mother made two Sunbonnet Sue quilts and I have published many posts about her.  If your interested just search my blog and you will find more than  you care to read about I  am sure.

My newest fun is vintage sewing machines.,  I will be posting some of my adventures soon.


15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body (body of Christ) you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit (who lives in your heart as a child of God), singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do,whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

If you believe in Jesus Christ as the Son of God.  That He was born and died and raised from the dead as a perfect sacrifice for your sins then you are His and you live your life for Him.  He takes care of you and you can live in peace each day as you strive to live a life in thankfulness for what He has done for you. I am so thankful for all He has done in my life.  He is my Savior!!  He saved me from my sin and death!  When I leave this earth, I will still live!  Just as He did.

DH still enjoys your Boot Bash quilt, almost as much as I enjoyed making it. And I am just beginning to return to hand embroidery as an evening project. Funny how things come around again.
