G-MA = Grandmother. I know some basic stitches but would love to learn some more, so I purchased an informational and beautiful book on embroidery. What better way than to bring in the big guns, my grandma.
My mother, grandmother and I congregated around the kitchen table yesterday afternoon. My mother was finishing up her M-O-M banner for mother's day and my grandmother and I picked up our hoops to do a little embroidery.
I love the history of this art form. My grandmother told me she had to take an entire class devoted to this craft when she went to school, it was part of a woman's education and constituted an accomplished woman. Although I'm happy it's no longer a required course I think this art form is something I would like to learn and incorporate into my other projects. Here are the hoops my grandma and I worked on yesterday. I created the little high heel!
Have a fabulous weekend.
