Yarn, Yorkshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Many, many , many years ago when I was a young,very,very,VERY young bride, I went to an embroidery class. Before we were “allowed” (those were the days!)to start a proper grown up project we had to make a sampler of different embroidery stitches on a piece of ticking fabric. I had forgotten all about it until a recent de-cluttering session when I unearthed ,at the back of a cupboard, in a carrier bag ,my forgotten treasure.

Here it is,..

That is just too pretty to hide in the back of a cupboard. So without more ado, I found a piece of fabric I have had for years. I have no idea what I was supposed to be doing with it.  Then out comes new scary sewing machine- which I then discover I have not actually been threading up right.. all a learning curve and

Have you got any treasures that need unearthing and finding a use for. Love to hear what you have lurking in a cupboard that needs a proper home!

    That embroidery deserves to be out on show . Great work.

  2. That’s gorgeous! I unearthed an old make I’d forgotten about too fairly recently ( https://mrsmmakes.wordpress.com/2012/10/30/a-sort-out-and-a-surprise/). It’s quite a nice feeling isn’t it?
