Red Embroidering

Well, I guess I'm on a sewing roll.  Just can't seem to put the needle and thread down lately. 
Not long ago I purchased some vintage French embroidered letter ribbon from Etsy.  It had my initials, only backwards: 'FS'.  It's been fun sewing the ribbon on kitchen towels and these linen heart sachets:

I like the little French box it came in, too:

Couldn't help but embroider a coordinating sachet with our first initials (dear husband and me):

It's always fun to personalize linens around our house.  I'll be putting these in the kitchen soon, to enjoy the lavender aroma.

Have a great week - spring is right around the corner!

These are beautiful! It seems anything with red lettering or stripes is very popular right now.

Enjoy the aroma:-)

New follower here...Red and white embroidery is a favorite of mine, it always looks so fresh and lovely.

I'm also a fan of Tilda crafts. I have many of her books; I just need to stop browsing them and actually make something :-)

How sweet, Susan! I picked up some embroidery supplies this winter, too. I wanted to put my initials on some grain sacks I have. You have inspired me to get it done! :)

I love the French initial ribbons!
I have some that are my initials, as well. I think it's really fun that they intend for you to put your last name first. I haven't used any of mine yet, but I hope to soon!
