A genealogy blog focused on families settling in East Tennessee and the Northern Neck of Virginia with explorations of Rusyn roots.
That is beautiful! Is the stitching hand done??
It is, Carol. If I remember correctly (distinctly possible that I don't) it was done by one of my Aunt Nascia's family.
OK, now I have stitching envy! :-) It is lovely, do you use it for purpose stated, or something else rather special?
Only Easter, though I might use it for a baptism or first communion if the occasion arose.
Well, I would tell everyone to be sure and click on the photo and see that amazing stitching up real close! That is beautiful and makes me want to do some cross stitch again.
I should add a detailed photo. I'll do that tonight.
That is so beautiful -- You know I love reading about this part of your heritage!
That is beautiful! Wonder how long it took to do it.
Stunning - that is one of the prettiest I've seen.
Lovely! I can only imagine the hours it took to make. Thank you for sharing...
