Thanks for stopping by a spell!

Welcome for the Vintage Alphabet Party! Vintage letters E and F
These letters are hard for me, but here are my examples.
E is For...............
Vintage Edgings.
These textile accents are can be found mostly on hankies, doilies, and pillowcases.
Whether tatted or crocheted they make any fabric project special.

This edging is a corner of a hankie. I used  to    accent a shirt.

This is another hankie edging.

This is the edge on a towel.

E is for..................
Embroidery of course.

This embroidered 1940's hankie acccented a tote.

and this 1950's one did too.

This French Knot and satin stitch basket is a 1940's pattern for a bridge table cloth. It's on my website as a bolster pillow.

This is 1950's Belle done by Mom as a young girl.

F is for.................
Vintage Fabrics.
I love the themes and colors of the vintage fabrics. These are three os my newest.

This is a wonderful piece of  Flower Sack fabric.

I love this curtain fabric from the 60-70's. and this is a true 50-60's upholstry fabric

Thanks for visiting a while. Now I'm on my way to visit the other party-goers. If you'd like to come with me or have decided join in follow, me thru here.

Great idea! I just woke up and got the email and am trying to think of E's and F's but most of my ideas are pretty wonky at this point! I love all your linens!

I hope you are doing well. I am playing catchup tonight reading and commenting. I am a little behind the time. Things are getting a little back to normal after a hective week. I am hoping this week will be better, but will have to wait and see. The weather has sure cooperated this weekend. In the 60's so can't complain. Your Missouri Friend.

Oh, edgings—how clever for E! I have tons of vintage handkerchiefs and just love the gorgeous edgings and trims. Hmmm, handkerchiefs might be a good topic for "H"!

Vintage edging that's a really good one! Love the feed sack prints too.
Best wishes,

Edgings and embroidery...I didn't think of those! So pretty!
And of course, you know I love those fabrics, esp. the yellow.
