  1. That is such a beautiful piece of stitchery. What a treasure. Enjoy your week!

  2. My grandfather's initials but not his bookmark. :)

    The title of your post made me think about "A Wrinkle in Time"--the only book I borrowed from the library and refused to return. Daddy sent the cost of the book back to the library for me so I could receive my report card at the end of the year. I was seven.
