Hand Embroidered Baby bibs. They came pre quilted so i challenged myself to go between the two layers...there is no stitching on the reverse side. Thanks for stopping by. hugs Leaha

Wow! These are so lovely! And a great technique of hiding the stitches! Well done

I thought so, I started doing this because one of my friends never looked at the stitching she would always turn my work over and critic the back. I think I foxed her, don't you?

I do too. I've always thought of embroidery as painting with thread. Thanks for stopping by.

You did a beautiful job on each one. I also love hand embroidery and have enough projects to keep me busy for the rest of my life. That is assuming I live to be about 150. hehe

Thank you, spendlove. I have done all of my pre-quilted blankets like this. A light bulb moment and this is the result.

They are really beautiful.
Looks like a lot of hand stitching - how long did each one take?
You have done a great job on them all.

Thank you for the kind word, my friend. I absolutely love to do hand embroidery. I have lots of items I stitched and have lots of items that mom stitched. I shared them with her sisters. I have also found a lot of items that she didn't get to do as she wasn't able to. I have enough hand embroidery to keep me busy forever. hugs.

I still have a lot of UFOs my mom left. I get a few finished each year and distribute them among those who loved her /Lillian

Leaha by Leaha 29 May 2015

That's good to know Miss Lillian. Maybe there is hope for me yet.
