Little treasures found in an op shop.
As most of the regular readers of this blog know, my collection is mostly vintage/antique/old - or whatever else you want to call it. Most of the contemporary work I have, has been done for me as gifts from stitching friends, as well as my own completed projects. However, now and again I see something in an opshop that I just can't bear to leave there, such as these charming little cross stitched pictures. Unframed, beautifully stitched; why on earth would anyone throw these out??? And to end up in a second hand shop for 70 cents or a dollar, after all that work... whoever stitched them will probably never know that they now have a permanent home with someone who treasures them!
