Gentle Friends thanks so much for your enthusiasm and super comments for my little St. Patrick's Gift-a-Way. I do love the drawings and giftings in the Blog world they are such fun - and the hunt for Belleek in my weekend travels is totally fun!!
Breaking up my mom's house and dispersing her things is odd as I have said before. I am still unpacking stuff and trying to find new homes for the things I had shipped out her to me - some of the things I just was not going to toss into the Estate Sale or Salvation Army pile - things that especially were not going was the needlework things I made or that my mom, grandmother and great grandmother made.
Today I wanted to show the three cross stitch things I kept from all the pieces I gave my mom.
This I made specifically for her - since she was such a super gardener and really liked angels I thought this was totally appropriate.
This is one I stitched many years ago, and never had framed, then my mom said something about dolls and country themed stuff, and so this seemed to fit in, and I had it framed up and she hung this in the breakfast room were it fit nicely. It was stitched so long ago (notice the year 1986) that I was still stitching on Aida cloth.
and this piece I worked on while I was visiting one time - and she really liked it, and sort of nagged a bit about it... I surprised her with it as a Christmas present. It was also a fun piece to stitch!!
I post some other needlework things tomorrow that I rescued and have now become the custodian of for my lifetime.
That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!
