I've been having fun with my new camera...here is the crewel picture I embroidered back in 1974....rather "vintage" now...this style doesn't really age though, at least I don't think so. It's large about 20 by 24.....
there are two humming birds at the top sipping from flowers......

And a little squirrel at the bottom..sorry, he's a little out of focus...surrounded by mushrooms and flowers...

the sides have trees of life....
the frame was handmade by a fellow from the church and is oak.....it has held up rather well, don't you think?
the last thing I will share is this pinecone and seed wreath my grandmother made about 45 years ago...she made each family one...the back is cardboard and she wired the main cones into it. We have this in our dining room with a few other special heirlooms. It needs to be dusted but that is quite a chore without disturbing anything...
