FOWC with Fandango — Tapestry

Fandango has hit on another memory with his word choice for today.

Mum was a keen knitter and in later years when her hands became stiff and nobbly with arthritis, she turned to tapestry.
She did one of the Cutty Sark for OB as he had a holiday share narrow boat at the time. I don’t know if they ever put it up in the house as I remember Wife Number 2 saying they would when all the improvements and decorating was finished. They seemed to be forever up to their eyes in home extensions, and have since moved.

The first one she did for us was dolphins as she knew we both loved them. A year or so later she gave us an owl, and the final one was of a stag. Each was professionally framed and given as a Christmas gift, immediately hung in our lounge for all to see and admire.
When we got the boat, we had no straight walls to hang them on. Although we put a lot of pictures on the wall with blue tac, these were too heavy, so we took them out of their frames and sewed them on to cushion covers.

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
