I thought I would share with you this beautiful vintage cross-stitched piece that was passed down to me. It was done by my late aunt, sadly it is not dated.
Aunt Edith was married to my mother’s brother. I wish I had known her better instead of just seeing her once a year at Christmas when I was growing up. She was the childless aunt who knitted all the nieces and nephews sweaters when we were babies. We all still own knitted afghans that we received when we were married. Like me, she did all kinds of crafts and handiwork. How lovely it would be to spend some time with her now.
At the thrift store the other day I found this vintage set of petit points . I love the frames as much as the stitching.
On the weekend I was lucky enough to win a giveaway over at Tudy's Craft Cupboard, thanks Tudy! I’m really touched to have won gifts so beautifully handmade.
Remembering all of those serving around the world on this American Memorial Day,
