A Little Stitching Post

Gentle Friends, I haven't posted any stitching in the longest time.  Not that I have been stitching - a little here and a little there, but I wanted to finish up the trip report first.  The two pieces I've been working on the most - outside of a couple of Exchange Pieces - are.......

........."Winter Wonderland" and......

"Rosy Morning" - both of these pieces were designed by Blackbird Designs....   with Rosy Morning, I really liked the idea of personalizing it with a family member, so I dug a bit on the old family tree and found Miss Martha Adelaide Hickox and the year of her birth - she is one of my Maternal G-G-Grandmothers and was from upstate New York.

That's about it for today sports fans.  Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

I think it's so clever that you used a family name & date! How special is that!?!?!

I love Winter Wonderland! That chart is going on my wish list for sure. I also like the idea of personalizing Rosy Morning. It's a wonderful way to honor a loved one. As always, beautiful stitching.

Both are winners Edgar. I am sooo
still loving your trip photos. It's amazing what you miss the first time through. Perhaps you're considering another trip in the not to distant future ... I've heard Ireland is lovely in the spring. :-)
