This past Sunday afternoon, Grace and I stopped at an estate sale. I have always loved Sunbonnet Sues so when I saw this pair of embroidered linens I picked them up right away. I'm not sure if they are meant to be draped over the arms or back of a chair or if they are unfinished, meant to be turned into mini pillows. Any ideas??
Here is a close-up of the pink embroidered flowers.
If you peek under her bonnet you will see a sweet face and even little eyelashes.
I thought I would introduce you to the rest of my Sues...
Some of you may have already seen my vintage Sunbonnet "Days of the Week" towels. Sue is busy ironing.

This is a Sunbonnet Sue and Suspender Sam baby quilt that I made when I was expecting Grace. We didn't know if she would be a boy or a girl so I tried to make it gender neutral but it ended up more for a girl. Good thing that's what she was! :0)
This is the first Sue quilt that I bought. We were visiting Phillip's aunt in Tennesee and she took me to an antique store. I told the lady at the store that I wanted a Sunbonnet Sue quilt and I had $40.00. This is what she found for me!
I found this "bonnet" quilt a couple of years ago when I went home to Ontario, Canada to visit my family. It was in a little antique shop near the town I grew up in. It is very soft and perfect for snuggling under.
The backing is made from old sugar sacks.
The last quilt I want to show you is a Sunbonnet Sue and Suspender Sam quilt. I was told it was found in the bottom of a trunk, inside an old barn.
I keep my quilts under the coffee table in the livingroom. Anyone is welcome to use them if they are cold.
Thank you for looking at all of my special Sunbonnet Sues!
