Springer Spaniel Embroidery

I love researching vintage embroidery patterns online.
I often see the same popular patterns
over and over again.
Needless to say, I always get excited
when I see something unique.
That was the case when I stumbled
across this painted and embroidered
vintage piece.

You can see the painted fabric clearer on the
background hills.
I'm not sure when this piece was made.
I've seen a similar painted
piece in a 40's McCall's magazine,
but the subject matter was very different.

Having a friend who breeds Springer Spaniels
just made this find that more special!

Here's one of the sweet puppies my children
got to meet recently!

Yes, we have more snow today.  My back deck railing
makes for easy measuring -- at least six inches.
Six inches isn't much in some areas of this country,
but in the mountains of West Virginia,
it doesn't take much to make these hilly roads
slick, slick, slick!
At least that's what I tell my husband
who grew up near Lake Erie's lake
effect snow!
Stay safe.


  1. Amy, that is a wonderful tapestry! And oh my, how sweet is that puppy? Wish I was holding it! Stay safe and warm!

  2. Painted fabric with stitches is another pretty mixed media arts. Loving it. The dogs are lovely, particularly love black and white.

  3. Hi Amy! So lovely to meet you. :) xo kristyne
