Lookie lookie at what I found!
And there were two of them! Beautifully hand embroidered children's blocks. I fell in love with them and had to have them. I was even willing to pay the big $1 for both of them - yep - only a buck! It made me sad to leave them there so I grabbed them.
Look at that close-up. Are they not wonderful!? Look at the cutie owl! He makes me want to hug him! Someone (not me) spent hours embroidering these and I hate to see something like this go in the trash bin or be discarded and not used. This work needs to be loved by someone.
When I bought them I had no clear purpose in mind (except saving them from the trash bin) but after I got them home I realized that they would each make a preemie quilt very nicely by just adding a border on each one!
What better use than to make two little babies a quilt using these wonderful hand embroideries! If you can think of a better use please send me a message and I will send them to you - but - to me and my mind - two little babies should get a quilt :-)
Please let this be a lesson to you all - don't throw it out! Donate it or - pass it on - or give it away - but please don't throw it out! It will be gold for someone else!
