Kitschy Kitchen Embroidery

I’ve mentioned before how much I love getting silly kitchen embroidery pieces and one day hope to display them all above my kitchen table.  Recently I finished one that I just adore.

Kitschy embroidery

Of course Knitty Kitty helped me finish this one.

It says “Come into my kitchen and chat with me, while I prepare a pot of tea.”  So cute!  And I love the vibrant colors.  The matching one that I will work on next says “No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like my kitchen best.”  It features the same woman serving tea to her friend who is now seated at the kitchen table.

From what I gather, these kits were from the old magazine “Everywoman’s Family Circle,” which was published in the 1960s!  The fact that I got the full kit for both pieces (including the pattern, thread, and a color photo of the finished product snipped out of the magazine) for only $1 just blows my mind.  I love this little piece of crafty woman’s history and while I embroidered it, I thought about who the previous owner had been (she had done a few of the letters before giving up on the project for whatever reason).
