more from Frieda

So excited to have gotten another creation made by my great-grandmother, Frieda.  It's so simple and sweet…I know just the spot I'll hang it. I do love getting these treasures. I like to think that my girls, and their children's children will cherish the things that I make. I hope so!

  1. Wow- that’s a fantastic treasure! I love things passed down through the generations! That is so neat that you and your daughters will get to see that hanging each day and remember her.
    I have a necklace that my great-grandmother made and every time I wear it I think of her. I don’t know about passing it down though- I only have sons, and they won’t want to wear it! ;)

  2. that is so pretty and looks like it has been kept in perfect condition. i too love all the little treasures i have received from my great – grandmother mary.
    hope you have a nice weekend!

  3. OH…that really is a treasure! And yes, I KNOW your girls will cherish the things you made :-) (’cause I sure do!)

  4. OMG – that is incredibly gorgeous and what a very special piece to own! I absolutely love it! You are so fortunate to have such a piece from your grandmother!
    And your children will definitely cherish all the things you make, even the little things you didn’t think were so special – they will love as well!

  6. This is so wonderful! Is this from an embroidery transfer or a pattern that your great-grandmother made? Either way it’s a treasure!I am in the process of making a 50 states quilt tinted with crayon and embroidered in the form of postcards/stamps.
