A special gift...

Recently I lost a special friend.  Her name was Marge and I knew her for years.  She passed away at 90 years young.  Years before she passed, she gave me this beautiful table topper. 
 It is handmade bobbin lace.
  She knew that I would love and appreciate it, Marge also had an appreciation for the needle arts.  Now that Marge is gone, somehow this table topper means even more to me... 
 I wanted to share it with you.

Thanks mom...

Many of you have meant my mom - Mickey or Mimi to the kids.
She retired and now gets to spend her days with us.
 She likes to sit by the fire and stitch to her hearts content.
She has been able to meet and enjoy the wonderful customers that come in each day,
and she has been bringing in flowers to brighten the counter...
Thanks mom!

Something old...

Carolyn was lucky enough to find this wooden hoop while on a stitchery trip in Colorado.
She thinks it is probably from the 40's. 
I admire that the craftsman ship in the vintage pieces.
This really does hold fabric nice and tight, but even when not in use it makes a great display piece for Carolyn's sewing room.
Great find Carolyn!

One of my favorites...

I stitched these in no time at all....then it took me months to decide on the framing!
I think that I got the framing just right.  This is just what I had in mind and the color can be changed to go with any color scheme.
I couldn't be happier!!!
The patterns are both by Jardin Prive designs
and in stock!!!
