It is a miserable wet and windy day here on the East Coast , mild but raining and down right miserable , think I'd rather snow.
Today is Tuesday so that means sharing a treasure and our host for Tuesdays Treasures is Melody of The House on the Side of the Hill , be sure to stop by and check to see what others are sharing this week.
My treasure today is actually something I did many years ago, I would say it would be one of my first attempts at embroidery and I wanted to have something to hang on Robbie's wall as he was just a baby at the time so it wasn't yesterday for sure .So I traced off this picture of the little boy from a coloring book , always did love to color and just did an outline stitch and a few french knots , had no clue what I was doing but I do remember enjoying making this for him. I can see that I should have chosen a deeper color for the face and hands of the little boy but I probably did not have a lot of choice in floss .
It is just a simple design but it spoke little boy to me and he did like it , wonder if he remembers it now? I framed it in an antique frame we had picked up at an auction , we went to a lot of auctions in those days , most of our furniture came from there at the time . I must be getting nostalgic as I really enjoy looking back at the time when our boys were young ,how fast the time has flown by. I think I will share one more treasure from a similar time , a few years later as we had two boys by this time and I was expecting the third . We were in New Brunswick our neighboring province and it was in the summer and a young girl was sitting in the mall drawing portraits with chalks so we had her draw our boys and I think this is really lovely .She was just a young girl , perhaps around 16 and was trying to make some money with her talent , often wonder what she is doing today . I don't remember her first name but the signature on the drawing is J Hasinger .
This is Rob and Roger , lets see Rob would have been about three and Roger almost 18months ,this is a perfect likeness of them at that time , so cute. So off you go now and see what others are sharing ,it is always interesting .
I normally go to quilting on Tuesdays but not today , my body is not happy with this weather and I must take it easy . Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy a great day.
