Embroidery, it's a lost art...

These pictues are the individual squares of a doll blanket my friend Marti gave me for my daughter-in-law, Deanna.  She knows how much she loves vintage so she gave me this darling little doll throw to give to her.  She also gave me a child’s blanket that will be perfect to lay in the grass and sit Lexi on.   Deanna will love them, they are really special, especially Hansel and Gretel’s Gingerbread Cottage.

Women don’t embroider anymore, it’s becoming a lost art and it’s so sad.  In today’s busy society there seems to be no time or desire for the old crafts and I have wonderful memories of mother and my aunts embroidering when I was a child.  I still have some of mother’s pillowcases, oh what a treasure they are and what a treasure this will be for sweet little Lexi...
