I have a question about some silk embroidery I came across at an auction. I didn't produce these, however if anyone in this area knows any thing about these pieces it would be great to know what it is I've stumbled upon. I did plan on using them for a quilt, but I want to know if they're something 'special' so that I don't ruin them with my 'not-so-perfect' sewing abilities, however if they're just massed produced, I"ll go to town....
Any info you might have would be great.

thanks a bunch!!

Have you ever put a brick through a big plate-glass window, Ralph? It makes a wonderful goddamn noise, and the people inside run around like rats in a firestorm. It's fun, Ralph, and a bargain at any price

They could be hand-done. They're very pretty.

it's hard to tell if they are hand done or not because the pics are too small.. they arn't super detailed or elaborate though so you are probably safe using them in a quilt or whatever without worrying about damaging a priceless antique
