An Anniversary Crumb


Since we both forgot to celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary this week
I thought I had better stitch it into
this week's Crumb from the Cutting Room Floor!


The cream cloth was once my white wedding dress.
In the nineties I tore my precious dress apart
and since then a scrap of it has appeared in much of my work.
My dress was made by my grandmother, Robin and my mother, Ray.
I love that the overcast stitch on the left
and the seam on the bottom
are still there
to include them in this small piece.


Week 27 done
For those who weren't here at the beginning of the year
I am doing one of these for every week of 2016.
The size is 4 1/4" x 6".
Because they are made up of scraps
and for that reason I call them
"Crumbs from the Cutting Room Floor"!

  1. Lovely piece of work. Happy anniversary. I find it hard to realize we have had our 57th heavens that makes me feel old.

  2. Such a wonderful thing to do, a piece a week.
    A lovely way to honor your anniversary too. Sometimes we forget dates.

  4. The inclusion of the seams seems so important to me, to know whose hands had been working those stitches in. I am glad I am not the only one who thinks this way.
