New in the Collection

I've been collecting postcards for as long as I can remember and while in Vegas over Thanksgiving I came across a newly opened vintage shop near downtown (and for the life of me I can't remember what it's called), and picked up some great vintage postcards. 

Photo Stitch

I found these photos at a community yard sale about 4 years ago and I finally used them for something. Pat on the back for me! Here they are, embroidered on random bits of fabric. I'm hoping to find some unique frames for them. 

Vintage Fabrics and Embroidery

My sister-in-law gave me a bunch of her Grandma's fabrics and whatnot awhile back (oh say, 6 or so years ago) and I finally decided to give it all another look. There is some amazing stuff! Pillowcases, handkerchiefs, table linens, etc. There's also some wonderful embroidery on a lot of this stuff. I also found some great blank pieces for an upcoming embroidery project I want to do, I've been itching to work on it for awhile! I have a few more canvases to stretch and since I end up letting that sit a day between gesso layers I figure I'll work on some embroidery.
