Pretty Ladies to Embroider!

Wooo Hooo! I just received a beautiful give-away that I won from Dani. They are printed with a lovely crinoline lady on each one surrounded by flowers and flowing ribbons. And I get to embroider them!
I love the way she wrapped them up in natural colored paper all tied up with string. Then she tucked in a really cute card in it. So sweet!
And here are the pretty pillowcases to be embroidered. I get to do that and it will be great to choose the colors. The package came with instructions, too, so it should be very do-able. I'm going to be using pinks, blues and minty green. I can't wait to get started!

Dani has a couple of great blogs. Drop in to visit her at Eagle's Wings and/or Glad Tidings, Primitives and Folkart.

Oh how lovely! I knew you collected the embroidered linens but didnt know you enjoyed doing the embroidery yourself. I can't wait to see them finished!

Truth be told: I know how to embroider, but I would much rather admire other's work than do my own. However, I think these will be very fun to do.
Patrica :o)

I can't wait to see what you do with these, Patricia - I have many crinoline ladies to embroider on a myriad of linen items I've collected over the years, but I can never decide which colours and stitches to use!
BTW I have been trying to access your eBay site, but it keeps telling me you have nothing for sale. I can't believe that is so!

I love Dani's site, too. I got the delightful chicks patterns to do some tea towels. You can't find these patterns anywhere around here. Bless her heart for helping us out and she is really reasonable, too.
