  1. I love all the old embroideries, I remembered that I have some from a charity shop in my stash. Well done on the Aunts block, it looks fabulous. Excellent food.

    Beautiful embroidery. Is the flower arrangement one of the Aunt’s blocks. If so, what is the name of the designer? Thanks. Did you ever get that pincushion made for the middle of your bobbin holder? We may get a little rain tonight and tomorrow and then it will be over.
