Welcome embroidery

Welcome embroidery

I found this piece in my sewing stuff with the original instructions and floss all neatly packaged wth the linen. Mom claims it was not hers, so it must have belonged to her mother. Grandmom B. was an embroidery dynamo who sewed beautiful table cloths, pillow cases, bed covers, table runners, bureau scarves, doilies and so on.  She taught Mom to embroider and Mom taught me. My embroidery keeps her stitching legacy alive and reminds me of my Mom and Grandmom with each stitch.

I stitched it up.  And it is going to go to my sister's house where it can welcome all who enter and honor a granmother's memory.
