In these difficult times, I continue to work from home. I am only selling items which can be posted via the Post Box which is just outside my gate. I have a stock of stamps and packaging materials and, therefore, can stay open for business without imposing extra risk on other individuals. As usual, accessories featuring original embroidery, in association with felting, hand dyeing and fabric painting may be found in my other Folksy shop - 'Lynwoodcrafts'.
SALE - Previously £42.
A lovely spray of vintage pink roses is appliqued onto a richly textured background of white and cream vintage linens and laces - carefully rescued from my collection of vintage table linens.
Portions of napkins, doilies, traycloths and tablecloths have been arranged on a length of woven vintage hand towel. A 'vase' has been cut from a remnant of vintage curtain fabric and blanket stitched in place. A spray of vintage roses, cut from curtain fabric, has been arranged in the vase. Small areas of the background have been embroidered using matching blue threads.
This is one of a series of hangings aimed at re-purposing vintage needlework which has been a little to much used and loved to continue in its original purpose. This hanging represents many hours of work (both my own and the needlewomen in the history of the linens) - it is not possible to represent this in the price. I do not, therefore, envisage being able to list many of these in my shops. Although the theme may be repeated, each of the hangings which I am able to offer for sale will be unique in composition, due largely to the unique nature of the vintage linens used. I hope you like this one!
This piece is backed by a plain cream fabric. A hanging sleeve is provided, into which a length of dowel has been inserted. Hanging cords are fastened around the ends of the dowel.
Free First Class postage included to UK addresses.

I wanted to stitch a textured and delicate background from my recycled linen collection. The appliqued roses provided a pretty focus for the design.
