Show and Tell Friday
This is my first time contributing to Show and Tell Friday although I have been reading people's posts for a few weeks and I started writing this post last week!
This clock used to hang in my grandma's bedroom.
When I was growing up, I would visit her in Chatham, New Jersey during the summers. I would stay in her bedroom with her since she had two single beds. The clock hung on the wall to the side of the beds and I would go to sleep and wake up looking at it.
It is hard to tell from the pics, but she cross stitched the face of the clock. The clock was a kit she put together to showcase her needlepoint.
Although my grandmother had many beautiful and special things, this is the one thing that reminds me most of her. When she died, this is the ONE thing I wanted. My mother has brought me carloads of my grandmother's things, but this one clock means the most to me. It reminds me of sleepovers at her house, how she taught me to do needlepoint and cross stitch, how she was very crafty, and fills me with the warmth of her love.
It hangs in my living room now so I can see it as soon as I come down the stairs in the morning and right before I go to bed at night.
