Mom's Crewel

This is another piece of my Mom's needlework that I have hanging in my "multi-purpose" room. Mom had sent this piece home with me one time to give to my friend, Willa. Mom and Willa never met face to face, but did visit each other on the phone occasionally. They felt like they knew each other with me being close to both of them. When I gave the needlework piece to Willa, she immediately had it framed and had a brass name tag with Mom's name made for it. It hung in her bedroom for quite a few years. When Willa's health started going downhill, she asked me to take it as she thought I should have it rather than someone in her family. Mom was so very accomplished with her needlework and seamstress abilities. I am always in awe when I look upon her work !!
