OOPS I goofed.

Here is some hand embroidery I have been doing while helping with ill family members. These were all found in a thrift store and are the older stamped patterns. For me it's painting with thread...therapy. I'm so grateful that my mom taught me this craft. I used my scanner and they aren't the best...thanks for looking anyway. :~)

What a lucky find! I love them all but then my second love was hand embroidery. I enjoy doing this still while sitting on the couch next to my handsome hubby.

Love your hand work I still do hand embroidery and still love it sometimes I alternate between quilting blocks and hand embroidery. Love to see others doing this type of work

Beautiful!!!!!! I am so glad you chose to repost your wonderful hand embroidery. I am missing the Hummingbird in this post. All are gorgeous.

Ahhh. There he is.

I am so glad you reposted here in the Community. I would have missed these handmade pieces of heaven. My grandmother tried to teach me this amongst other crafty things. As she has passed on, I have found more things that remind me of her than while she was yet living.
Thank you for sharing your work.

Thanks rescuer. I have tons of items my mom herself emb and feel really blessed. I even have her cedar chest to store and rotate the items in. When she was alive we spent hours doing lots of embroidery.

You have been busy! I did my first hand embroidery on an old pillowcase, following the lines my Mother drew on there in pencil. Doesn't hand sewing feel like a tribute to Mom? Now back to some faster stitching? Oh, I forgot, my favorite is the standing bunny.

Yes, it is a tribute to Mom. Thanks I like the bunny too. I'm always fascinated how they look after done. Thanks :)
