Day 10 Photography Challenge topic (Childhood memory)

These two crewel embroidery pillows were made by my mother.  With the photography challenge topic being "childhood memory" these items bring to mind the needlework arts my mother taught me.  I began with crewel embroidery, mastered cross-stitch and needlepoint.  We completed hooked rug projects (when those were all the rage in crafting).


Another childhood memory ~


So glad these animal crackers are still being made by Nabisco.

Your mother's embroidered pillows are stunning! It's amazing how many hours were spent creating them. You're lucky to have them.
I remember the animal crackers...even my boys loved them when they were young.

I love the gorgeous pillows! They are really beautiful.

I also loved "animal crackers" (cookies).
