I've been collecting these vintage pudding bowls for a few years now. They were made by Crown Lynn in 1960's NZ, along with a lot of everyday utilitarian ceramic ware, and are now collected and prized by many people. You can still find some of the patterns in op-shops and junkyards, but most of the good quality stuff is traded online and in antique and design stores.
Anyway, this week I took inspiration from some of my favourite Crown Lynn patterns in my embroidery and worked these designs in vintage embroidery yarn. I made some wool-embroidered cases for today's shop update. The case on the bottom right you can see in the photo was embroidered with berries, a bit like the popular pattern 'vintage' of which I have a few ceramic pieces. The other cases were not so directly inspired.
Hope you're having a lovely week so far. We've just been to the library and come home with an armload of books to read which is pretty heavenly.
