When arriving at the church yard were he was buried, we were greeted by a gentleman who was more then happy to answer questions and talk a little about the cemetery and who else happened to be buried there. The church is no longer a church so to speak, but more of a place to rent out and have weddings, parties etc. Very interesting. It would be kind of fun to have a wedding there..........my mind is running wild :)
I am thrilled I was able to visit this cemetery. Like many I enjoy walking through these somber places, thinking about the folks buried and what their lives were like.
How many of them were avid stitchers? Of course, most did know the techniques of sewing and mending among so many other things. Did they ever make samplers? If so, were are they today?
Stitching is certainly a gift that we have learned from a loved one or even self taught. I am thrilled to know how to stitch. I hope that my samplers are enjoyed for many lifetimes to come.
Stitching for me the last bit hasn't been much, my poor SDW has been neglected, but Elizabeth Mears is making progress. Of course, it is brainless progress because I am filling in that house :) Sometimes brainless is perfect!!
The question is what will I feel like working on next? SDW sits by my side everyday, but Rachel Howell is calling as well. We shall see. I don't want to jump the gun to fast on what is next, I need to see if I can keep up the momentum first!!!! LOL.
Thanks for visiting my blog and taking another adventure with me. Where shall we go next?!!!!!
