Yeah - another bib. Sorry. I'll be off this kick soon. =)

This one I love though, so I had to share. I hand embroidered the dogwood blossoms - it was a vintage embroidery transfer pattern from the 1940s, meant for a sheet set. I chose some retro-reminiscent colors to do the work in, and found a pink hand-dyed batik that was looking lonely in my stash, for the back.

Thanks, everyone! I'm finding embroidery to be addictive... something I can do with my husband while he's watching a movie. I was having a wicked hard time with French knots in the flower centers, so I ended up using a colonial knot instead. Worked much better, is sturdier, and is very consistently sized.

This is so amazing. Much to the chagrin of my husband, I've announced that I'll be dabbling in embroidery very soon!
