Hello from Dallas-Fort Worth where my phone tells me that it is 16 degrees (it is actually warmer in Milwaukee right now which is sad). The normal temperature for this time of year is like 50 degrees. My husband promised me warm temperatures if I married him.........where are they, dear?

One of the things my Mom sent me for Christmas was a set of cross stitched sheep that my Grandma Marks did. She was an accomplished cross stitcher but she never taught me, I picked it up on my own after she had died. She loved birds and most of her pictures are of birds.

My grandma also did this set of birds. They aren't stitched on aida or evenweave or linen. They might actually be stamped cross stitch but I'm not sure.


  1. These are beautiful - such a nice rememberance of your Grandma.

  2. Lovely heirlooms!

  3. Your Grandmothers stitching is just beautiful! I love the blubords especially.

  4. I love the bluebirds as well. I thought that I'd somehow lost them in the move (which made me very sad) but we found them in the Christmas stuff and put them up in November.


I love to hear from my followers! Let me know what you have to say.
