To start the year off on Vintage Embroidery Monday, for the next seven weeks I’ll be sharing a Days of the Week set of embroidery patterns for what the Workbasket pattern calls a Colonial Kitchen Set. But you’ll see that the patterns are all for common household items that would have been found around almost every house before the advent of electricity.
Today we start with Sunday and a hurricane candle holder. Now something like this would not have been used to light your way in a hurricane but the glass globe would shield the candle flame from drafts and also while you were carrying it from room to room. They also prevented wax from splattering.
