A Sweet Gift from Years Ago...

When I worked for the Attorneys' Office, one of the advocates brought me the sweetest gift.  Her sister made it.  I have treasured it for years.  I do believe that the talented woman has since passed...so I cherish it even more.  I am amazed at the work in such a small treasure.





This little gem is made of simple felt.  The embroidery and blanket stitches are so amazing.  The size is only about 3" by 4".  As you can see I have never used it.  I am that way with things that I think are so cute....

Just stopping by to say Hi....it is quiet here right now....and still HOT.  I already have done my work for the day.  I am doing some creating...but too soon to share yet.  Have a good hump day!

That is darling and it's so sweet that you treasure something that is handmade! I think the world ran a muck when industrialization hit the scene. Objects should be made by hands, by women....artists....and treasured!

What a treasure - and what a thoughtful gift. Imagine giving a gift that someone still treasures years later - gives me pause for thought about the gifts I'll be giving this year. Thanks for sharing.

Hugs,

What a sweet little needlebook or sewing kit seems more likely. It really is a treasure.

It reminds me of the stitches used so many years ago just to give a baby dress a bit of trim.
Sweet keepsake.

It's really hot here today too. Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog. I don't remember what font my framed date project was. I was clicking through so many and they all started to run together! The vellum worked really well and came out much darker than I expected. Stay cool! p.s. Did you know your email isn't enabled on your blogger profile? I couldn't respond to your comments.
