Textiles My Biggest Weakness!!

I love textiles!!!  I stuff them in every little corner of my world.  
It doesn't matter where...
there is no room where they 
don't have a special spot.

I have stitched up many of them myself.
I have also given many of them away to friends
for little presents from the heart.

Some of them are vintage

This is a mini quilt that I made several years ago.

I also made this cute little dishtowel...

I like to stitch up dishtowels with faces,
they seem so cheerful to me.

Sometimes I think they can be 
very amusing
like this little pair...

And even practical like this little door hanger that
I cross stitched for my children when they
were babies.

I love textiles they are such a wonderful reflection of who we are.


  1. Hi Chris,

    Beautiful works of embroidery! Love your thrift shop finds in your last post!

    Happy wednesday!

    Lieve groet, Madelief

  2. All of your textiles are lovely, I too am very fond of gathering these but have neglected to show them off as well as you.

  3. And now you're hooked on hankies too? Great - now we have even more in common! Thanks for your comment on my blog - it's been lovely to come over here and see yours.

  4. Oohh, the little doggies are too cute. I am enjoying reading your blog, I will add it to my blog list on my sidebar for others to find too. Tam x
