Stiching Up Wildflowers   6 comments

 

Week 5 – February 13 – 19. Stitching up wildflowers – creations made with textiles (fabric, yarn, thread etc.) and featuring wildflowers in some form, made by you or someone else.

I have lots of linens with wildflowers or flowers in general stiched on them.  Many of them were gifts and the most precious items are the ones made by my maternal grandmother (Babushka in Russian).  The items that were done by my Babushka are in the third row of this collage:

 My sister has also posted items made by my Babushka and gives a little background on her.  I also did a post back in June  in honor of her and that also has some of her work pictured there as well.  Here is a cute picture of Babushka with my niece Debbee:

Babushka is always the first person who comes to my mind when stitching is mentioned.  Great memories!
