It’s been a busy day — and I am late with my photo hunt!
Needlework has been one of my favorite hobbies, and this piece was one of my favorite pieces to do. I made it before Jeremy was born, 22 years ago.
Here is a close-up of the detail I love about this piece. I don’t know if it will show up well, but the little iced cookies are raised and the little cupcakes have french knot icing. I love the stitching for the grass and fringe on the blanket as well.
It’s kind of sad that the boys have outgrown it and there is no place for it in the house now. I hope when the grandkids come along to have a room for them when they come over, so it will be back up then. 🙂
Most of the needlework I have done had been cross stitch, but most of that has been for gifts. I haven’t done any kind of needlework in ages — I wonder how well I’d be able to see it now.
One of my favorite hobbies has always been reading, as represented by two of our four bookcases:
You can see to the side there evidence of one of Jason’s hobbies, golfing, though he hasn’t done much of it since getting out of high school.
And finally, one of my favorite new hobbies is computing. This is where I visit with all of you. 🙂
