This piece started life as a crewel embroidery project that Amanda’s mother worked on while her father was in the hospital in 1973. Years later, it has been reinvented as a gorgeous piece of usable art that will spread beauty and color for years to come.
I’ve been eyeing this piece for years, contemplating a connection between my craft and my mother’s. Meanwhile, I’ve been collecting other crewel art to upholster a set of chairs at my dining room table. When the set is complete, I imagine dinner parties with my guests and the ladies who created these art pieces in spirit.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t think of a more lovely way to preserve both the memories and hard work!
