A break in transmission

We're having a spot of bother with our internet connection, so postings will sporadic at best for a while.  Please enjoy this cupcake until normal programming resumes. 

PS Do you like the Sturt's Dessert Pea embroidered on the doiley?  My great grandmother Winifred made it.  Such tiny delicate stitches. Winifred had eleven children and lived on a farm in South Australia.  I'm so in awe of her handiwork and totally astounded that she even had time for making beautiful and useful things like this. Goodness, can you imagine the washing!

  2. I love these embroidered pieces too - how lucky that yours have lovely memories/attachment too. I imagine the lives mine have shared in - it's hard not to see such work and wonder at who might have created it, isn't it? Thanks for this. K

  6. I love your great-grandmother's embroidery - wow. She must have had some fantastic tales to share - I'm with you, can't believe she had any time, but so glad she did.
