Embroidery Hoops and Vintage Fabric

Ah, this is a sweet fresh look for vintage fabric! I just love the way they came out! I wish I had more blue in my house, because I would keep them! In the shop now...

I do not have much more left of this great fabric. It was an old bed sheet, but I have cut and cut and cut and sold some of it. It is really down to a hand full of small pieces. This is a nice way to preserve it. I remember finding this fabric last summer, wondering whatever I would do with it. I miss the summer so much and my treasure hunts across rural Eastern Pennsylvania.
I just think this set would look darling in a nursery... This fabric I also found last summer at a barn sale! It was overlooked in a box under a table in a dark corner and I rescued it! Some of the pieces were so bright, I bet they haven't seen the light of day in decades! I have used so much of it in projects. The fabric is truly vintage, some patterns and pieces dating back to the 1940s!
