Instead of recapping our last few days and hours in NH - I'll post a few photos of some things I found antiquing with my sister.
I wonder if this was a published pattern or if some clever person didn't just figure out how to knit an owl. There were two more of these in dark olive green. Most likely a product of the 60s/70s. Also two strands of yellow buttons that I picked up on a whim. I have no idea for them. They just yelled at me to bring them home.
A rescue job. The work on this piece of hardanger is gorgeous. It has a couple of loose threads on the back, at least that's the side I'm calling the back. Someone did exquisite work and it deserved to be freed from a box of miscellaneous junk.
This pattern is called "needlepoint" on the back. Made in the USA. Cost me a whopping $3. Finding pieces of china/pottery with needlework motifs on them is my way of incorporating stitching into my kitchen. I won't be eating off of this. For display purposes only. Now where did I put those plate hangers that I bought last year?
