Additional pieces...

I just "pre-inherited" some items from my grandmother.  She recently moved from an apartment to a group home so she had to downsize.  These were items that I had stitched for her over the years so I'm glad that I got them back.

Here is a photo of them incorporated in with the items that I already had.  They are all identified below the photo.  Items with a * had been my grandmother's.

Left to right: 
  • Rune Sampler* from DracolairCreations
  • Hummingbirds* from Stoney Creek's Stitched Elegance book
  • Viola's Lace Sampler - my own design
  • Hummingbird Sampler* from Cross Stitch & Country Crafts March/April 1990
  • English Cottage Sampler from Teresa Wentzler
  • Footprints in the Sand from Leisure Arts, leaflet #378
  • White Musings Mystery Sampler from The Gift of Stitching May/June/July/August 2007
  • Waiting for Ships from Mirabilia
  • Proverbs 31:13 from Stoney Creek's Stitched Elegance
  • Cathy (Hardanger)* from Leisure Arts, leaflet 330 Teach Yourself Hardanger Embroidery
  • Raphael's Angels - not sure of the designer information
Happy Stitching!

That is so great that you got to keep them! So many times I've made something for someone else and years later I just casually asked where it was...most of them have either gotten rid of them, or it's tucked in their attic somewhere.

It's great you got them back! I hope she kept some things though

I'm glad you got those back, they look great on your wall between all the others ^_^

I love how, while all very different, they all fit together so well. My mother has gone through all of her "pretty" things and put stickers with names on the back so everyone knows who gets what when the time comes. I know I'll be getting all the stitched items back but am in no hurry.
