Vintage embroidered monograms

Good morning all!

As you all know I am designing a lot at the moment and coming up with lots of new scrummy designs ( at least I think they are), I have another article coming out in an American magazine in the summer.

I have been playing with vintage embroidered monograms and linen and vintage hankies as a base for my work.  I am looking for old vintage rubber stamps with my initials on, so that I may white work embroider my initials and that of my husband.....

The intricate work of some of the embroidery I see, absolutely astounds and pleases me.  When I buy a vintage sheet to cut up I always hope there is some original embroidery that I may be able to use in part of my work. 

I have been playing with a tiny chain stitch which is working beautifully....

The gorgeous shaker threads that I bought in America are working very well on antique linens and I am pleased at the results.

Have a wonderful day whatever you are up to.

Happy Stitching!

Embroidery is the art of enriching a fabric with stitchery!
