A Hidden Treasure

The days are extremely hot--over 100 degrees, and I have been busy with work.

I wanted to share a beautiful piece of stitchery that my niece inherited. She pulled it out of her closet one day, and there it was...in all its glory. It's yet to be framed, but here it is Lavender and Lace's The Bride:

Her husband's grandma stitched it, and after she passed away somehow my niece ended up with it. What a treasure to have!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Summer has flown by, and very soon it's back to the daily grind. Sigh, c'est la vie.

I have only stitched once all summer long. I wish I had found more time to do work with my needle and thread, but that's just the way it was this summer.

With that being said, today I want to share a beautiful piece stitched by my daughter. It's actually the first thing she ever stitched. Well, besides little pieces of Aida with simple letters and shapes, that is.

She gave it to her cousin in honor of her cousin's wedding.

So here she is, Titania:

I think it turned out so well!

Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you find time to stitch a bit.
