SBQ: Family Heirlooms

And another Stitching Blogger Question of the week, which should leave me all caught up:

Do you have any pieces that you would liked passed on to future
generations as family heirlooms?

At one time, I thought so. My mother has a Tigerlily piece I did for her, and my father has a big Marine Corps Emblem that hangs in his office. Unfortunately, the first piece I ever framed and gave to them suffered smoke damage, and I haven’t been able to get it completely clean yet. They haven’t expressed any interest in having it back, either. Mom stuck another piece I did and gave to her in a drawer, and forgot that I’d done it at all.

Some of the pieces I did for my first husband’s family, like a baby sampler and a nice serving tray, may get passed on. Maybe. They may have gotten rid of them because of the association with an ex-spouse. Who knows?

  1. I’m sorry to hear your birth family doesn’t seem to understand the value of what you’ve given them. **hugs**
