Remember the day back in 1983...WOW. Where did that time go? So this piece I started when my first son Adam was born in yes..1983. I had it about 7/8ths of the way done and put it down for whatever reason - diapers, another baby, sick kids, sick dog...who knows? So recently I got real organized and found this piece. I thought what a shame that it is not done. So I finished it. It had acquired some age spots and it was on Aida. I don't stitch anything on Aida. That was pretty much what we had to choose from at the time. I filled every square in for background using a herringbone stitch. I don't frame these pieces anymore just samplers. So I made this box. And I love it all over again! I would never stitch this today as samplers is my love and joy. This is probably my biggest conffetti piece I own. Done!
