Peg's daughter got married this past weekend, and she wanted to give her something special, something old. She bought some handkerchief linen from Britex in the City, and embroidered a beautiful little "L" on it. Then she gave it to me to hem and attach some handmade lace trim from her grandmother. The result was so precious - a perfect gift for the Bride!
I really enjoyed the hand stitching on this piece...I hadn't done any fine needlework in ages. I've been fascinated with some of my creative blogging friends like Susan at http://plays-with-needles.blogspot.com/ and Kathy at http://studiointhewoods.blogspot.com/2012/03/two-new-littles.html and their ability to make thread "sing".
Peg did a great job on the monogram. Loved the tiny bug!
The best gifts are those from your own hands, don't you think?
Laurel. Sew a memory!
