Stella Clark Schlegel

My late mother-in-law was an amazing tatter!  This last week my husband and I spent a few days in the farm house that is still decorated with her needlework and it felt so good to be surrounded by her pieces.  My father-in-law passed away last fall - as is common in more Northern climates, his service was postponed until this summer when everyone could gather to say good-bye. 

I love this piece with motifs joined together with tatting ...

and the tatting edged embroidery.

I was surprised to see this crazy quilt!  

Great details ....

I have warm memories of sitting together and talking, each with our own needlework!

Happy Creating!  Deborah
