This project was one I most enjoyed. My Father had given me a couch cushion of my Grandmothers. I remember it well, when it was placed on her living room chesterfield, every time I visited Grama. Grama would be in her 113th year this year. She was 82 years old when she passed away. Memories of the miniature tea set that all of the grandchildren played with, and Grama making my first cup of tea when I had stitches in my lip when falling that day, are still fond memories. The tea was so good, real or imagined, big or small, all with her love and gentle blessings and care.
The pillow sham pictured here, was sewn by myself with her cushion fabric, so carefully cleaned, placed and sewn, into the middle of fabric I purchased recently, to refurbish and revatilize my Grama’s heirloom. The cushion from the Early 1900’s was pretty tattered in The Year 2010, and couldn’t just be put in a closet for safe keeping. I hope my Grandmother is proud of the sewing project that stemmed from her craftiness with knitting and hand sewing. My Aunt, her daughter, is a fantastic seamstress today.
God Bless Our Grandmothers, eh?!
