I love these embroidered postcards sent by soldiers to their loved ones in the First World War. We must remember.

Challenge inspired by Blue Daisy Here

  1. Oh so beautiful and poignant. Creating beauty in the most difficult of circumstances. Thank you for sharing.

  2. For interest, who did the embroidery? The soldiers themselves or could they buy them?

  3. I’ve never seen this kind of thing before–so poignant and lovely.

  4. Those are so beautiful. I never knew that they did this. Thanks for sharing, Cathy. Have a great day.

  5. What a treasure these must have been to receive.

  6. I’ve done some machine embroidery on cards but this is new to me. What an interesting find! Thanks so much. I’ll pop over and check out the link.

  7. Oh my, our family has lots of these sent from family members in the war. Aren’t they just stunning?
