Show & Tell Friday for February 29
For Show & Tell today, here are a few more items from my walls. These are on the wall at different places in our upstairs hallway.
This nifty old (stamped) cross-stitch of a little red schoolhouse was made by one of my great-aunts. We found it among her things and I decided to bring it home and give it a good home.
This plate was a gift from my sister many years ago. It is a painting of Bass Harbor Head Light in Maine. We had gone camping there together once and stayed at a campground within walking distance of this lighthouse. One evening we walked down there and were surprised to meet a deer in the misty evening light. My sister is in heaven now, so the plate is a lovely reminder of her and good times spent together.
And this crewel stitchery is one that I made for my grandmother many years ago. It was returned to me when she passed on. It depicts a little Hummel girl. My grandmother had a lovely collection of Hummel figurines, and I made this to complement them. It was a fun project to do. The little girl's face, arms and legs are not stitched but are made from peach-colored felt and the details embroidered on top of the felt.
And that's my Show & Tell for today!

I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
