Artifacts

The other day and came across some old stitchery projects I made a long time ago. I used to do a lot of babysitting when I was in high school. There wasn’t much on after Saturday Night Live and Second City TV and I got bored so I used to bring these projects with me for something to do after the kids went to bed.

I liked crewel embroidery (using yarn instead of floss) and counted cross stitch (done on aida cloth) better than plain embroidery. I also liked the kits with lots of different stitches… my favorite were the little French knots. Here are pictures of two of them that I completed at least 25 years ago.

Aren’t these things great?!
