This blog should be called "The Adventures of a Fabric Junkie!". I am passionate about fabric, threads, colours and textures. I can record my crazy quilting, sane quilting, embroidery and everything else that I consider important in my life.

Close-up of tatting and hem-stitched linen

I bought several sheets of these little hem-stitched shapes on eBay a couple of years ago. The circles measure 1 3/4 inches across and are meant to be used as centres of crocheted motifs. They date from around 1900. I slip-stitched some vintage tatted edging around the edge of the circle and added ribbon roses and rayon thread bullion leaves plus the little gold blue bird charm.
