More opshop finds..

This time, it is a pair of cross stitched vintage cars - perfectly stitched on fine Aida, mounted and ready for framing. What went wrong then? Why did they end up at the op shop for 50 cents each?? Well, if the person who stitched these gorgeous little pictures is reading this, be reassured that your work has found a loving home. I am going to have them framed, and they will hang in the gallery in my linen room. Just wish I could put a name to them.

Hi Gina, Knowing the time and effort that goes into each and every cross stitch project it is amazing to me that someone could just let something like these two pieces go. But I suppose lots of people don't appreciate such things. Their loss. I know you'll get great joy out of them and look after them.

They are gorgeous works of art and make me want to haul my cross-stitch out from under the bed...immediately.

Judy, I agree with you 100%. Someone's loss is my gain. Maggie, did you get your cross stitch from under your bed? I'll be checking your blog to find out!
