I almost forgot the dogs

I've posted photos of embroidered blue birds and I've posted embroidered kittens. I almost forgot to post photos of all the cute puppy dogs. Among the dogs, I think my favorite designs are usually the Scottie Dogs. There's just something about the rich black floss against snow white linen, and there's usually a little bit of red in there, too. But there are all kinds of doggy designs that are just so cute.

Just look at this sweet little doggy talking with the blue bird in the arbor.
There is so much detail on this runner: the sky in the background, the bell shaped flowers and even the arbor itself.

This Scottie is very simple, but so very cute. It is embroidered using teeny stitches on a white linen card table topper.

This runner had a different dog design on each end. One end had a long haired pointer...

And a little black terrier puppy on the other. Isn't he so adorable

These little darlings are so happy to help with laundry on wash day.

Some puppies are even embroidered on to baby blankets. This is an old Vogart design. She's got the cutest expression on her little face as she pushes her baby doll in a stroller.

I sold this adorable pair of pillowcases to a lady who's daughter was marrying a firefighter. Notice the fire hydrants in the background? How cute is that?!

And so romantic, too!

This card table tablecloth had a little chunk torn off of the side, but, Oh my! the design is so cute! I love the Scotties!

Hope you enjoyed my doggy episode. I'm looking for photos of horses and other animals. Flower designs are fun, but I enjoy embroidery of people and animals so much more.

So adorable. All your old linens remind me of my Grandmother and her love of linens. She actually taught me how to embroider and we used to do kitchen towels. I would love to find some of the old transfers and do some embroidery. Thanks for sharing your wonderful pictures. Love & blessings from NC!

So wonderful! I had a pillowcase my mom embroidered for me that had a horse and foal on it. I say "had" because I used it and washed it so often that most of the stitches disappeared. I should have asked her to re-do it for me, haha. ;)

I remember those patterns and it was so much fun to look at them once again. Scotties were very popular and on everything. I even had a tiny umbrella as a child that had a cream Scotty dog handle which I loved. I have wondered what happened to it.
What a wonderful hobby you have, collecting vintage linens!
My grandmother gave me the love of such things..and I really am sorry today that I used them and wore them out. Wish I had taken better care. Today I do. :)
Hugs and thanks for the sweet visit!

Thank you for your sweet visit today. Your site is so great. I love vintage embroidered table covers. I have just 2, but they are very special to me because they were my mom's. She just went to be the Lord this past September, so I treasure them so much remembering them in our home growing up.

I adore them all! You have all the pretties!
Take care and enjoy your day, Elizabeth

Such darling doggie linens. I swear I have either had a few of these as pillow cases or tea towels at some point in my life. You have quite a collection.

Erin said...

Those pups are too cute! I'll take pictures and send them to you of the new pillow cases Brian's Granny embroidered for us. It's a woman in a bonnet with a garden.

I've always loved embroidery. New, old, and everything in between. I'm so glad to see things like knitting, crocheting, embroidering, etc. making a comeback.
I read on down your blog and saw that you are living in SA. I have good, good friends there. I know what you mean about Texas weather! :) Thanks for coming by and saying hello. I'll be following.

I love the way you have been posting photos of categories in your collection - it is a neat way to show them. I am partial to Scotty dogs too, and have a few, some of them the same as yours. Amazing to think these designs have travelled the world!
