The other little piece has quite a tale behind it. I came to work one day and found a box at our front door. It was labeled Mom's craft stuff. I took it in and opened it and discovered a treasure trove of needlework. Some of it was (very badly) framed and some of it was unframed. When the manager of the store came in, we went through it together and decided that all of it needed a new home so we split the contents between us. Some of the pieces were unfinished, some had stitches missing but it was obvious that whoever stitched them really loved what she was doing. And someone appreciated them enough to make sure they were placed where someone would love them. I would hate to have seen them be sold at a garage sale or donated to a thrift shop. So I am going to begin framing them a little at a time and I think when I get some of them done, I'll do a giveaway on a piece or two. So keep checking back. You'll never know when they'll pop up here.
