Aunt Demmy's Baby / Strawflower

Good Morning Sunshine, I give all praises to God!  I was going through some old files and came across a couple of cross stitch pictures (Aunt Demmy's Baby / Strawflower) that I had stitched/framed and sold on Ebay so many years ago.  I am quite sure these two pieces are being displayed in someone's home or maybe an art museum.

Until next time, have a Beautiful Day!

Baskets by Mary Jane, Designs O'Bryan

I have cross stitched another great design by Designs O'Bryan.  This piece is called Baskets by Mary Jane. I wonder if Mary Jane is an actual person.  When I posted this piece, I was immediately informed that these ladies are in Charleston, South Carolina and still making sweetwater grass baskets.  This chart was copyrighted 1977 and if I had to say is Mary Jane is a real person, my guess would be yes!

Happy Monday

Hi Tywanna here!  Stitched and framed by me, this piece is called Strawflower by Designs O'Bryan.
I donated this piece to be auctioned off at the Hartsfield Jeffries Family Reunion held July 2014. Guess who won......, my Aunt Margie.  This piece was meant to stay within the immediate family.

Next piece I am cross stitching is Baskets by Mary Jane.  Of course this piece is by Designs O'Bryan. I love their charts...., so if you have any copies that you would love to sell, send me a picture at josie_9901@yahoo.com.  Here is a peek:

I finished Strawflower and framed it myself.  I know the person that wins this picture is going to treasure it for many years to come or so I hope.  This is my second time cross stitching this piece and the third time will be for me.

Next project working on is for the NC State Fair, titled Clowning Around.
