I've gotten back into embroidery lately. I did a few sack cloth towels for Christmas presents but didn't keep any. The birds and the row of dogs were found on flicker ( Vintage Embroidery Patterns) . These and other patterns are also on my Embroidery Board.
I also joined The Toy Society. I love the idea of random acts of kindness and this will provide another outlet for my new interest in softies. Besides I only have so much room in my house for calico elephants.
