Sewing box treasures!

I have finished last week’s embroidery and before I go to get it printed, I thought I would do another along the same lines.

I love working with the subtle shades of duck egg green, teal, apricot and cream.

Fortunately when hunting through my threads for appropriate tones I came across quite a few delicious shades on beautiful old bobbins.

I have acquired the vintage bobbins through either my Grandma or my hubby’s Grandma.

This one, I came across whilst op-shopping in Maryborough a few years ago!! I couldn’t believe my luck and it wasn’t very expensive from memory.

I’m pleased so far with the subtle shades and textures in this embroidery using lazy daisy stitch and back stitch aswell as Suffolk puffs and French knots.

Until next time.
