Stitching mends the soul









This little doll is housed in an old drawer covered with pages from a vintage embroidery stitch instruction booklet. Her skirt is made from a piece of vintage patchwork but I've added my own tiny patches and buttons. Hope you like her.

I can see by your Pinterest posts where the influence of your sweet creations comes from.
Much like our ancestors did you find delight in salvaging from the past to be worked into something to hold on to for the future...
