Treasure

We're having a garage sale this upcoming weekend, so I've been rummaging around in some of my mom's old unfinished crafting projects. She was notorious for starting crafts and never finishing them, and I have to admit a bit of that has rubbed of on me!
Well, amidst the cross-stitch instructions, embroidery hoops, ribbons, yarn, fabric, and other crafting items, I found this lovely, FINISHED piece of handsewing. I think it is absolutely gorgeous! I had a bit of trouble photographing the entire piece, but the close-up pictures give an idea of the detail involved.
I'm so excited to have found this! I'm going to frame it, and, someday when I have an available wall, hang it up - hopefully in my future sewing room!

That IS a treasure!! I know the feeling of finding something that special and reading yours actually made me tear up. When you're mom was sewing that, God knew you would find it one day.

That is stunning! What a great find. Someday my kids will find all sorts of unfinished projects.

I love that. I reminds me of all of these lovely hand-embroidered towels my mom received from her mom, etc. What a great treasure!

Are you three moving now that you're expanding?
