Home Sweet Home: An Embroidered Workbox – Post to my diary - (Book Review – Needle’nThread.com)

Home Sweet Home: An Embroidered Workbox – Book Review – Needle’nThread.com. I just fell in love with this. Another side of me that has been "sleeping" for some time. Crewel work. I used to do this a long time ago but got away when cross stitch became so popular. I want to find someone in the USA that has this item for sale... So adorable. Funny what triggers the drive to keep stitchin!

Angela's Veil - post to my diary

The Veil!  It was made of three layers of fabric.  Each layer had a row of beads (three in each stitch) all the way around each edge.  The comb was beaded with the leftovers from Angela's wedding dress.  It hung beautifully from her updo!

Post to my diary...

No chance to pull up Angela's veil picture. Working from the IPad is great until one needs pictures. And we have them everywhere. I really must organize them as already I'm sorry that I have not taken more time with them. Hopefully tomorrow...
