I did these tapestries after I did my Grandfather's present. I caught the tapestry bug.

Long Stitch

Besides doing all these long stitches I also made the lampshade. I did a Home Decor course many years ago.

In 1981 my Grandfather gave me my Christmas present in November. He always gave me money and I would buy what I wanted. However, this year it came too early and I asked him why he was giving me my present in November. He told me he wouldn't be around at Christmas. I told him not to be silly as he was well. However, 2 weeks later he got pneumonia and died. I wanted to get something with the money that i could remember him for the rest of my life. I bought this tapestry and eagerly went about doing it. Thinking of my Grandfather with every stitch. He was a remarkable man with so many stories to tell. I miss him and wish i could tell him that. I am sure he knows how much I love him.

Swedish Cross Stitch

I got this cross stitch when i was in Sweden way back in 1975-76.

Folk Arted Tray

I painted this tray a few years ago when Folk Art was all the go. It sits on my wall near my kitchen.
