It was a little stained, but an Oxi-Clean soak took out most of them. It's nice to brighten up my table with a treasure like this. I still miss her every day, but love having bits of her work to remind me of her, especially a little surprise one. The boys noticed it, and it gave us an opportunity to share nice memories. That's the wonderful part of handmade crafts - they tell a story, and always keep a bit of the artist in them.
Today's blog post is brought to you via my mom, Lucy. I found this little table topper at the back of a linen closet as I was cleaning last weekend, just in time for spring. I'd completely forgotten about it. Probably been in that closet for years. Again, made from her favorite flower garden pattern, hand stitched.
