More needlework

My Grandma Few stitched this picture sometime before 1954. That year she had a stroke and was completely paralyzed on her right side and was bedridden until her passing in 1972. I reframed it in the 80's. She was a quilter, too. So the need to do something with a needle must be hereditary.
Mom did this one sometime in the 60's. It was a gift for her mom, my Grandma Few. After Grandma died, Mom got it back and she gave it to me. The embroidery work is absolutely beautiful.

Those are really nice embroidery pieces. I really like the house design. They both look really good even after all those years.

Do you have the horse one hanging somewhere now? I feel like its been a really long time since I've seen it.
