Next up, it’s vintage…………..

Another of my grandmom’s little pieces…………..IMG_3719

The gold/yellow fabric is a piece of Kona but I might change it out for a similar color “Radiance”, by Kaufman.

Once again, I’ll be using Glide thread as the top thread and Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly in the bobbin. I will be stitching this on my Juki TL2010Q.

    Hmmm…very pretty and interesting. The fabric i presume is a cotton? I have a few of those type doilies myself so I’m intrigued to see what you do with it.

    I have a bunch of those doilies! I never thought of doing anything with them other than as is so I can’t wait to see what happens next. Please –keep us posted! I love the teaser!

    So pretty-I want to see what you do with it!

  4. I love vintage embroidered items like this. I always find it tough to pass them up in thrift stores or at garage sales.

    Will await your reveal…

    You know I love it when you work your magic on vintage pieces! I keep thinking I should try a similar project but with hand quilting, since that’s my preferred method.

    Oooh, you’ve got me interested! I just finished making a table runner using pieces of my mom’s old hankies. I had no idea what to do with them, but was inspired by another blog and now I love it! I have some of her embroidered doilies like yours, so I’ll be watching to see what you do!
