I stitched this family tree for my mother in 1983. At some point I added some names to it, but it had been a long time (the 'babies' of the family are now teenagers!) So I took it apart again and added some names to it. Grandchildren are as far as it can go as there is not enough fabric on the bottom to add any more names! My youngest is the only grandchild who is married so far, but if mother wants to have something with the grand children's spouses, I'll have to stitch something else! I changed out the mats while I had it apart. Sorry about the flash in the after photo - it was cloudy that day and I couldn't get a good shot w/o the flash.
Thanks so much for your kind words yesterday. The headache thing is an on-going issue (2 years - not always at the level it has been for the past 5 days, but daily none the less) and we have yet to find a med that works for me. So far, none of the regular migraine meds have worked. I try really hard to ignore it and not to mention it here in posts, but by yesterday it was getting to me again. While the headache is not better today, 'I' am doing a little better. (this morning anyway - by afternoon I could be back in a funk!) I know that is not what you tune in to see here so I'll try to keep the headache talk to a minimum. If you are reading this - thanks for coming back!
