- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

If you visited here then you know from time to time I mention my lovely mother in law and her treasure trove of all things lovely. I have posted about many of the lovelies she has passed down to me, both things which she worked on and that of Aunt Lucy and her crochet lovelies, I've posted of those too.
While visiting with her this weekend I inherited a few more lovelies, I don't know where she keeps them all, I know she is a pack rat and has things loving tucked around, and she knows where they all are located. I'll share a little each day I think. I call it "The Trove".
But for today, I think this is my favorite piece. Mom used to crochet, and somewhere along the line she moved over to the embroidery, she has some lovely things.
Love the colors, so perfect for this time of year, I just love this piece and the colors for this time of year. I would like to maybe put this in an oval frame. I'm afraid to cut on it, and don't want to ruin it, I'm not that crafty a sewing. So I will ask what you think you might do with this beautiful piece.
I'm sure someone will come up with something I would have never thought of.
Enjoy your day,
Thank you for stopping over
