Tuesday Treasure

When Mick and I were married Mum made us this cross stitch wedding sampler.

It was a total surprise.  Apparently, I nearly caught her working on it a couple of times, but when we opened the gift we were gob smacked.

The colours are more vibrant than the photo shows. This was just as the craze for cross stitch was starting and is reflected in the style.

It is a lovely reminder of a very special day.

Pop over to Clare’s to see what other treasures are on show this week.
