On that note, I have recently inherited some dear possessions of my great-grandmother's. She passed away when I was only five. My grandmother is in the season of life where she is scaling back on stuff and downsizing her home. So, she has passed many treasures on to me. I have been the recipient of a plethora of wonderful books, mostly on nature as that was my grandmother's favorite subject! She has also passed to me some projects and materials that belonged to her mother. Among them are:
Some complete and incomplete embroidery projects:
As she got older, she was less able to see well enought to complete these.
The one that says 'Wedded' was intended to be a gift to my mother on her wedding day.
Some vintage fabric scraps which I may just have to use to make a few cute hotpads via Anna's instructions:
And, most precious of all, I can sew these things on the very Singer that my great-grandmother used. It still runs beautifully, I might add.
I am blessed to be the covenant daughter of a believing mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and probably even more! It is a privilage to join in with these generations to serve the Lord in my home.
"The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of his heart to all generations."
