Last week I stopped at Goodwill in a nearby town. Have you ever noticed that different Goodwill stores have different "personalities"? But I digress...
I found a Just Cross Stitch magazine from the 90's that called my name. I am convinced that someday I'll walk into a Goodwill store and find a copy of "The Proper Stitch" on the shelf. Yes, I am a dreamer.
I wandered over by the picture frames and discovered two large framed pieces of needlework. Oh my. I spent a LONG time deciding whether or not to bring them home. In the end I decided that I LOVED this one and had to have it.
I love the facial expressions of the kitties and the detail of the tablecloth is amazing. The white patch to the right of momma kitty is a clean spot - the rest looks like it is covered with nicotine. The frame isn't anything special. I will probably take the project out of the frame and figure out how to clean it. Maybe there is a drycleaner in town that can make it pretty? Here is a close-up of the facial expressions that made me buy it.
The other framed piece is such a perfect example of the 60's that it came home too.
This is a stamped embroidery project that is professionally framed. The calico fabrics are perfect 60's colors! It would look great hanging in a retro kitchen. Too bad I couldn't get a picture without so much glare!
Kitty picture - $4
Pig picture - $5
