Old With the New

I adore the mix of old stitches with new. Crystal Rhew took some already-embroidered, vintage linens and added the Michael Sieben and Jim Woodring patterns to them. The results are sweet and curious: 

Using colors to match those already found on the linens is an especially nice touch! Be sure to visit her blog to see her meticulous work up close and in detail!
