Threads of Thought on creating with cloth and stitch
Beautiful embroidered bouquet, what a treasure...so many memories in these pieces.I smiled at your comment, still all 'starched'. That brings back fond memories.Jacky xox
I did this kind of embroidery years ago too. I didn't know my mother. When I was in jr high school I started my needlework journey. Relatives said I had a natural ability to embroider, as my mother did magnificent work. Later (when I was 40) I met my brother who gave me an unfinished piece my mother had worked on. She did magnificent work. Too bad we never worked on a piece together.You have a wonderful memory to cherish each time you look at yours.
some beautiful embroidery. i have one piece that was embroidered by my mom but mostley pieces done by my grandmother. so nice to have these as remembrances.
I have a number of pieces that were done by my grandmother. My mother was more into tatting, but not in the years after I was born. She seemed to lose interest in crafty things as she got older - too bad, because I would have liked to learn from her.
I too have a piece that my mom and I both worked on. It's a needlepoint and I love it.
