Gunnel's use of vintage things makes it especially attractive to me. She incorporates paper and fabric and buttons and embroidery----all of the things I love to use in my work, also. One more collage to spend some time looking at........

Hi, I'm Pam - I've been a moderator for the Needlework boards on Craftster since 2004 and you can also see me in the Craftster Quickies video series.
I am a lover of all things vintage but I particularly have a fondness for vintage embroidery patterns, which I collect every chance I can get!

These are lovely coasters I found in Debra Gangelhoff's etsy store
and so I checked out her Flickr photos and found more delicious embroidery.
I love the combination of crochet and embroidery, wool and color choice. I want to get out my thread everytime I look at such beautiful pieces! Debra has many other pictures in the Feeling Stitchy Flickr pool.
Debra says she has been inspired since she was a child by the sight of a woman with needle and thread creating something beautiful. It really shows, Debra! Thanks for sharing your work with us!
