Grandma-Hand Stitched

Soul Scrappers Challenge TC15-Technique Hand Stitching
The challenge was to use hand stitching on a scrapbook page and I thought, who better to scrap than my grandma...the journaling is difficult to read but says "Grandma Rhynes taught me to embroider when I was about 10.  She made me flannel nightgowns at Christmas and dresses, and used the scraps to make quilts.  Fun to see in the quilts later."  I don't generally like putting my handwriting on a page but I know it's better if you do...I fell in love with this layout and had to 'scraplift' from Robin at Creating Memories...One Moment at a Time.

  1. This is amazing Barb! I love the beautiful stitching and the papers and colors are perfect with that photo. It always nice to add in your own handwriting! Plus I think you have beautiful penmanship!

  2. Wow, that's layout is great!!! Love all the stitching -- I haven't had much look when I've tried it, the needle holes are always too big to hold the threads. As usual, you did a great job!
