Hello, and welcome to Leisure Lane…
I’m very excited today because when I opened my mailbox this morning there was a most delightful surprise from my dear blogger friend, Kathleen. Kathleen is the author of the blog Yesteryear Embroideries. She is a most accomplished seamstress and embroidery artist, so if you have never seen her amazing work, drop by to say ‘hello’.
When I opened the package, there was this beautiful, handmade apron, showing off some of her lovely embroidery on the pocket. Was I dreaming? This was the exact apron I’ve had my eye on in her shop. A sweet note accompanied it. And though this beauty in itself was enough to make me swoon, there was more…
Neatly tucked inside the pretty pink pocket was this terrific crocheted dishcloth (right) and this sweet quilt (left); notice the delicate embroidery stitching down the center. The colors are perfect, and I was most pleasantly surprised and grateful. Thank you Kathleen!♥
For my long time followers, you may remember the post I wrote about Kathleen and her blog Yesteryear Embroideries. Click here to view it if you’d like to refresh your memory, or you’ve never read it. Kathleen also owns an Etsy shop, and has recently opened her brand new shop right near her home. For those of you who are on Facebook, you can see what’s in her vintage shop here. I’ve got to get on facebook!
One of Kathleen’s small crazy quilts will be featured in the fall edition of Crazy Quilt Quarterly Magazine, due to come out August 1, 2015 – so look for it in your stores. I remember her posts as she worked on some of those gorgeous sections of her quilt.
Well, that’s all for me today. I hope you enjoyed your stroll down the lane, and I know you’ll enjoy strolling around Yesteryear Embroideries.
Until next time, may happy days abound!
