SBQ: Family Heirlooms


Tigerlily
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?

Marine Corps Emblem
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.

Bloom Where You Are PlantedSome 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?
