I have a great collection of antique embroidery which I got from friends and family.
I think I´m the only one who loves needlwork in our family. So fortunately I get all the old embroidery from friends and family they don´t care for. I think you can understand how happy I am about this :-)!!
I just got another old pillow from my aunt. It´s all stitched with tent stitch over one!!!! It´s a little damaged, and the threads are surely faded, but it´s really beautiful. She told me, that it was already antique when she got it about 60 years ago. I think it´s stitched in the 19th century.
