Friday's Vintage Find

Scandinavian design in cross stitch can generally be recognized by its reliance on geometric patterns.  Although this vintage pillow case has no specialty stitches like the popular Smyrna Cross, it's still beautiful and striking with the red on white coloring.  I really can't believe that it wasn't taken home as a treasure at the estate sale.  I found it at a thrift store that received all of the estate sale leftovers

It's a great piece to bring out at Christmas or Valentine's because of the red coloring.

And now, Sassy Cat,  you can go back to sleep . . . .

(She really lacks enthusiasm for vintage items, but I find her company quite soothing at times.)

Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for visiting!

"Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: 
he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved."
Psalm 55:22


  1. I love how our cats always seem to want to steal the show!
