the needle done

this one’s for bell, not to make her go ooooooh, or anything. just an addition to our dreams. bell’s brewing on a terrific, creative idea to ‘do away’ with cast off embroidery pieces. only last weekend outside a brocante gathering, we tore a grand lady away from her framed wooden prison, when here now i find another one, one who ambles over a meadow path, and sets my imagination rolling. i have different ideas to bell’s about recycling wasted needle work, but for now it’s just clustering. imagine all that effort that the original embroiderer needled into those scapes, and then those gems end up at the local thrift shop or at the next garage sale. i wonder, one day maybe, vintage embroidery will be in demand again.
