Embroidered Doyley holder

I've mentioned my blog friend Sylvia here before. She collects Royal memorabilia, and I've added a few small pieces to her collection recently, for which she swaps some of her embroidered items. The Coronation hair pins I mentioned in the previous post attracted Sylvia's attention, and we arranged a swap. I think I got the better bargain, and she thinks she does, so it was another very satisfactory exchange. She sent me this gorgeous embroidered "Doyley" holder:

How lovely! I just love things like this. Gina, you asked on my embroidery blog about the wonderful linens you sent to me? Yes, I love them all and have embroidered a couple of them. I am in the middle of designing for a book proposal and have slowed down on stitching a little, but still love to stitch in the wee late hours. Thanks you for those lovely linens. blessings,Kathleen
