vintage embroidery

I love all vintage embroidery transfers, and I am constantly embroidering something, when I'm not sewing. Right now I'm getting ready to make my kitchen curtains. I am embroidering Vogart's rock n roll vegetables on the main part of the curtains and putting bands of colored linens towels as a frame. I've got red and golden yellow, so I think I'll use both. I'm going to be redoing my kitchen in butter yellow, red and either turquoise or green. Can't decide on the last color.

Here are some pics of the embroidery I do. I make a lot of bibs for my shop, onesies, and t-shirts. Made a quilt for a young lady, doing 9 blocks of vintage embroidery. I am working on another one for her, as she is expecting in June. Both quilts are baby quilts, using vintage reproduction fabrice. Really sweet. I'll have to get on my other computere to post more pics, as I forgot they are on it not this one. Sorry.

This is the latest creation I have done for the shop. I love the way it turned out. I used Sandi Henderson's patterns, Portabellopixie ruffled pants and I think Claire.
Today is Easter and I have family coming over this evening. So I must go get the house together and begin cooking. I will post some more pics later today.
