Stitched Treasures

It was great to receive an email so soon after putting the post out about knitted treasures. A blog reader called Kelly sent in photographs of blankets she had stitched; one for each of her 3 daughters when they were born. Kelly said that they are something she could never part with and are most certainly treasured projects. All of her daughters still have them today, her eldest daughter is now 14.

There is so much detail in each of the designs, you can tell a lot of love and care has gone into making these hand stitched blankets.

When Kelly had sent in the blanket images she also mentioned treasured pieces her daughters themselves had stitched. They each designed and stitched a cross stitch for their grandma’s 60th birthday. It is always good to see craft skills being passed on to younger people. What a fantastic job they have all done too! To think Kelly’s youngest daughter was only 6 when she did this. I imagine their grandma was very┬áproud┬áto receive such thoughtful gifts. It is lovely to be able to give a hand crafted gift that someone else will treasure as much as you cherish the memories of making it.
