Bass Embroidery Designs

Very Thoughts provoking article it really help me to set my strategies regarding.


Thank you for these Clarice,
I have been stitching this week and enjoying it so much.


First I wanted to convey how delightful I've found this site to be and wish to also impart how lovely the embroidery patterns are. I was hoping that there may be some advice for where I may find more redwork type patterns from 1900's to about the 1940's. I especially enjoy the patterns of cottages and gardens. I do have a few. However, as with anything of this type, I find myself completely obsessed. By the by, you might like to know of a company entitled Lakadaisies that also has lovely redwork patterns.


Thank you so much, Clarice! I just printed out several lovely ones!


Hi Clarice, Thank you for sharing the patterns, they are great. I also thank you for leaving a post-your name is in for the apron giveaway. Best of Luck
Have a Blessed Day,

Dear Clarice,
Have you read "The Harvester" by Gene Stratton Porter? The heroine makes her living drawing embroidery designs. If you have not it is well worth hunting out. Gill.


The singing bird is very sweet! I will save that one. I might use it for a needlebook cover.

I've been wanting to embroider here lately...I need new supplies and the place I usually buy from is no longer carrying any embroidery supplies...ack! I love the cat drinking out of the barrel...all are lovely. Thanks for sharing!
