This is the mate to the lady. The colonial woman is quite popular in embroidery but rarely do we see any men. In vintage embroidery it’s all about cute ducks and kittens and life in the kitchen. Be sure and click on the image for the full size.
This is presented sideways so it can be printed out at it’s original size of 8″ x 9″. Originally it was designed to be a potholder but it could also be printed out in red for a custom valentine and glued to some lace.

I love the shape of the trees in this one and the blanket stitching. The trees by themselves would be cool for making an eco statement. For baby, a single bird would be cute and quick to embroider.
