Here's the front - I used all sorts of vintage 'bits' that belonged to family members, both from our side and from my d-i-love's family too.
The back used a lovely family heirloom that was
embroidered by my d-i-love's grandmother
and was used in their family whenever anyone
was celebrating a birthday.
I didn't have the heart to cut into it, so
decided that it would be a perfect backing.
The doily in the centre and the piece on the
right was also from that same grandmother.
And here's another view.
It was delivered to our #1 son
and daughter-in-love on Monday, so
now they have the fun of trying to find
someplace to put it
(perhaps under the cat?)
Today the quote is from the ever-present 'Anonymous'.... "We all have within us a center of stillness surrounded by silence"
