This blog was created to tie in with the exhibition of my linens held at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre, Vic. from August 29 to September 16, 2012. The collection is still growing, so this blog will be updated on a regular basis as I accumulate more items. Many of these are either partially complete, or not embroidered at all. I accquire my linens from a variety of sources including opshops, garage sales, eBay, and people who know I have a passion for vintage embroidery.

Aprons - events
This is commemorating the centenaryof South Australia.
This apron is very unusual; I have wondered if it was designed by someone as a one-off, or was it a printed pattern?
Captain Cook's Cottage - not an event; more of a commemorative apron. It must have a story behind it but I can only imagine the truth. It has obviously been stitched by two people - one experienced and one learner. Some of the stitching is perfect, and the rest is rather awful! I think Mother might have been teaching her small daughter to embroider, and this is the result. It's never been quite finished, and I am leaving it as it is.
