Ode to Sewing Needles! Piecework then and Now

Imagine the incredible power of a one inch piece of metal to make exquisite art? The 1884 quilt cover pictured was by a housewife who knew at least a hundred different types of embroidery stitches, back in 1884. A customer walked into the shop today with this exquisite needlework locket. Took just 16 hours for me to make it, she said!
