Proverbs Sampler

In keeping with my squirrelly posts this week, here is a sampler my mom stitched way back in the early 1970s.  Can you see that era's influence with the mushrooms and colors?  It's fairly large, about 16 x 20 inches.  Originally in a narrow gold frame that was pretty nice, the joints were separating when it came into my hands in the 1990s.  I had it reframed-- when that service was still affordable.

So I know a viewer should be focusing on the verse-- and I sometimes do-- but I have to admit, my favorite part is the squirrel.

Again this Saturday, I am linking to Mockingbird Hill Cottage's "A Favorite Thing." Pretty fun to explore new blogs!

Pop over enjoy!
