You can't appraise art by looking at pictures. It's only worth something if it's old, rare, or has some (verifable) history. Which one can only verify in person.

That said, while I'm no art historian, they style looks obviously modern to me, so it's not old. The text on the left side indicates that it was given as a gift. Unless the giver is particularly famous, and you have proof, it's not worth anything.

Silk embroidery and stitched are a bit more expensive than a print, but, honestly, you can get them really cheap in China if you know where to look. Maybe if the embroidery is of exceptionally expert quality it might be worth more, but one can't tell from pictures.

My unprofessional opinion is $20-$40.

I agree with jbradfor, except I think his appraisal is a bit too high. If you need money ASAP, find something else to sell.

The framed image of buildings on a waterfront is interesting. You're sure it is an ebroidery? (looks like a print or painting) It should have a bit more value although it does appear to be modern.

As for the embroidery with bird and plum branch, this type thing is pretty common but prices for anything Chinese have risen. Even new pieces. I don't know about in China, but at a US flea market or antiques show this piece should bring 40-60 dollars.
