Mark's Great Grandmother embroidered a set of coasters in the 1930s. Maybe earlier. Mark's mother gave them to me. They are lovely pieces of linen. I did not want to use them as coasters, the embroidery was just too pretty. So they sat in a box. That did no one any good. I needed to do something with them. Finally it came to me what to do.
I need to crop the picture a little and I will as soon as I can!
A detail of the embroidery. It was amazing to me that all twelve are done so beautifully.
