Back before we could order on line I would shop by catalog. One of my favorites was Hershner’s Catalog for crafts. Each year for Christmas I would buy a surprise box of stamped embroidery items. It was their way of getting rid of items that didn’t sell or stuff they were over stocked with. The box was always a real bargain. It was just fun to see what they would send me. It was my Christmas present to myself. This daffodil stamped pillow case came in one of those bargain boxes. It had a very nice hemmed edge to crochet with. I looked through my old collection of 10 cent books from the first half of the 20th century and found this edging pattern. It was for a handkerchief edging. I used no#30 cotton thread for this crochet project and my favorite vintage no #10 hook.
This was an easy pattern but just what these cases needed. I embroidered the daffodils in their natural colors.
I still haven’t used them and they reside in my ceder chest with all the other ones I have done.
The pictures were taken when I first finished them with an old digital camera. I am working on my menu and wanted something quick to post to set up a needlework menu and chose this. I will up grade the pictures later when I get into my ceder chest.
