A quiet week..............






I have stayed at home this week, I collapsed at work last Friday, due we think to my new tablets!! so I am having some small amount of time off from my job to allow the new tablets to work. I have been doing some embroidery so I thought I would show it to you, I love the idea of patching old blankets with embroidered pieces so I have started to make a few, then I can assemble them..to often I come across beautiful blankets with iron marks or holes, this is a way I can save them, and make them pretty again.
I also made myself a small apron with an embroidered pocket, this has kept me quite quietly occupied, and out of trouble ha ha.
Sorry for my poor replying, you have left some lovely comments that have really cheered me up. have a lovely Bank Holiday.
Hugs Lynn xx

Your blanket embroidery is so beautiful. Be gentle on yourself and take lots of time, I hope you can mop up some sunshine over the weekend. Take care Hugs Debs x

Annie said...

Lynn, you have provided me with a solution to a long time problem. I have a white quilt that is very worn. I've never been able to let it go so it remains folded in the linen closet. Your solution of embroidering patches over the tears and stains is just the inspiration I needed.

Hope you recover quickly but be sure now to continue resting well.

Love
Annie

Lynn, I just love visiting your blog. Your embroidery to fix old quilts is such a perfect idea. I don't know why I hadn't thought of it before. I have an old quilt from my grandma that I want to prolong its long and wonderful life... and in the 70's when decorating every piece of clothing was "in", I did alot of embroidery. Of course my taste in style of embroidery has changed immensely over the years since the 70's, and are now perfectly aligned with your beautiful examples. Thank you~ Vicki

Hi Lynn,
Seems health issues are in the cards for us both. You ask how to survive the jumble sale….well pick one area and go for it before it opens …that should help but if you wonder around too much you’ll find you have lost your place and by the time you get back there it will have been quite picked over…bare actually…hehe! That’s what happened to me last week…couldn’t move fast enough…hehe!
Take care,
Hugs Annabelle
p.s. love the birdie and roses

I hope you are feeling better today and that your body adjusts to the medication well.

If you have time, would you mind directing me to some books on embroidery? The piece you are working above is gorgeous and my heart yearns to create like this.

Thank you!

Your embroidered blanket is so pretty Lynn,how lovely to repair something in such a gorgeous manner!
And I am sorry to hear that you are still unwell, perhaps you went back to work too soon as well, d'you think?
I hope you have enjoyed the sunshine of the last few days, we've had a smashing few days. It's always a tonic in itself.
Do take care of yourself and sending huge hugs.

Dear Lynn,
Please take good care of yourself. It's so easy to get wrapped up with everyday things that we put ourself last. A lesson I need to learn also. Your embroidery is so lovely...hope it helps to give you comfort during this time.
