I have some very old black+white embroidery too. My mother (german:) made them when she was a young girl (not in mourning I think...).Ciao (und tschüss) from Italy, Helga
Somebody cared enough (and used it enough) to darn the second one ...
...yes, and in places the black thread has faded to grey... - + hallo to Italy: von der Stadt aufs Land, danach verlangt's mich auch...;)
What a great find Heike !(I think they might be accompanied by some red stitches, sooner or later ...)
oh it's beautiful, wunderschon
Yes, wunderschön + a good catch - for 6 €, all 3 of them - took the guy by surprise, though (he deserved it, being as unfriendly as uninformed...;)
