Lucky Duck

During the last year I've worked a little bit here and a little bit there on vintage embroidery blocks.

So relaxing to sit and stitch with some handwork.

Lucky Duck has been placed up on the design wall next to the others.

I think I like his little sailor hat the best.

I now have a total of 18 completed blocks.

I've been taking my time.
No rush.

Eventually these will all be placed together in a quilt for my grandbabies.

This quilt keeps growing in size as I find more vintage embroidery patterns.
Some are just too sweet to be left out.

I remember seeing these patterns in Mom's pattern drawer. I did quite a bit of this type of embroider on dish towels.
Grandma was a firm believer that ones hands should always be busy. At 84 Mom always has some knitting or crocheting to do while she watches TV. What a great example!
