I everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend. We did even though the weather was less than ideal. We did a little junking over the weekend and I found this beautiful embroidery piece.
The style is called Candlewicking which a type of white embroidery work on unbleached cotton. From what I've read it traditionally has used the Colonial knot and backstitch.
Anyway, I love embroidered things and I have quite a few embroidered pillowcases. So when I saw this framed piece I just fell in love. I love the simplicity of just using white on white!
This could be the start of a new collection for me! I could actually do some embroidery pieces myself - I'd really love that!
In looking around my home I realized that I had a few other pieces with the same theme! The piece above I got on ebay many years ago!
This little one I've had for over 10 years!
I'm busy getting my screened porch ready for the porch party on Monday. I really find these parties good motivation to get things done! Now if only someone would have a clean your bathroom or clear off your desk party - I could use one of those!
