Old Embroidery for Baby
Asyou all know my Mom works for an auctioneer. While I was there they had to pick up an estate for later sale at the auction, Mom and I went. It is usually a long day and we wanted to see how Mom would do before I left to come home. Among the many treasures that were there Mom found these so I brought them home with the Auctioneer's permission of course.
I imagine these were done for their children. It is a shame that the kids didn't take them but there was so much stuff in that house I am not sure where they put it all.
There is no backing on either of them. The white one looks as though it had been done on a table cloth and the blue one looks like a sheet was used. The boy is a bit spotted up and some of the embroidery is coming out as it looks to me like they used rayon floss instead of cotton. Not sure what I will do with them but I am going to try and clean them up a bit. I got some more ties too and I have been busy unsewing them. There are quite a few silk ties and some that are linen or wool but most of them are polyester and a few nylon ties. I have a couple of projects in mind for those, one is the Sunbonnet Sue.
