Friday is Show & Tell time at Kelli's. I always enjoy sharing something of mine. Some times new, sometimes old!! Today it is something old.
This is a pair of pillow cases that I embroidered MANY years ago.
I began embroidering at the age of 8 when my parents gave me a sewing box, embroidery hoop, needles, thread and a very simple pattern for my birthday.
I took right to it and loved it and spent many, many pleasant hours embroidering various pieces. As I got older I added counted cross-stitching to my joys.
I wish I could tell you the exact age of this pair of pillow cases but I honestly don't remember exactly when I did them but I know it has to be at least 35 to 40 years ago.
As you can tell, they are in almost perfect condition. Although I did use them once in awhile I have mostly preserve them to be handed down to my children.
Thanks for letting me share yet a little bit more of me and mine with you.
