This is the first in my new series "you reap what you sew".

You reap what you sew no. 1 is embroidered in slate and purple on beautiful homespun linen that is between 80-120 years old. The embroiderer holds a needle and thread and is in the process of stitching another woman.The porcelain doll arm is from Germany and was dug from the earth from the grounds of an old doll factory that operated between 1890-1920. The piece is framed in two vintage metal embroidery hoops that measure 5 1/4 inches in diameter each. The piece is backed with wool felt and is signed and dated on the back. It hangs with a simple lace ribbon.

If you'd like to read more about the history of the linen you can check out my blog post about it here: http://marysgranddaughter.blogspot.com/2009/06/look-what-i-found.html
