I can't help myself. . .
When my grandmother taught me how to embroider my first tea towel I was hooked. It took me a long time to get it down, tying the knot and making the stitches even, but it was totally worth it.
Now when I find damaged pieces of embroidery, I have the compulsion to "save" them. I have listed a few pieces on my Etsy site and here are some that I will list soon. Aren't they sweet!
