Grandmom’s Birds


Today, July 3, would be my Grandmom’s 101st birthday. She was one of my favorite people, and though she’s been gone 10 years, I still miss her. Sometimes, I smell her perfume when there is no one around, and think she must be visiting. I am lucky to have this beautiful crewel embroidery she did, a long time before she died. We had it framed and gave it to her on her 85th (I think) birthday. She was impressed with her own ability as a stitcher…she hadn’t been able to see to do such fine work for quite a while. I have it hanging above my dining table, where I see it every day, and it always makes me smile. Happy Birthday, Grandmom!

  1. Thanks! She always had something she was working on, or mending (if you look closely, you can see her mends on the bird picture, too).

  2. what a lovely memorial to your grandmother. we love bluebirds at our house. what a pretty thing to have–such a wonderful way to summon her memory.
