Saturday morning, I hung the ersatz garland up in the front hallway and positioned the ornaments so the fronts were visible. The little embroidered dates on them surprised me. Some of my friends were serious counted cross stitchers (Aida!!) I was more of a dabbler. Focusing on smocking and knitting when time allowed although Laura wasn’t born until ’83 so that explains why there wasn’t a mouse stocking with her name on it.
A surprise gift from my sister from Arundel Ladies Booth.
My friend Joanne knit the tiny sweater years ago
One ornament from my needlepoint phase
