This is an old needlepoint I purchased this past week at an estate I am buying from, I fell in love with this framed piece and it was the deceased persons grandmother who had it, I will assume she made it also. I love old fruit pictures any way that I can find them. Fruit I am sure was not in abundance in the "olden days".
I hope your Memorial Day week-end has been nice. Here in Utah it is rainy so I have stayed inside and compiled many many boxes for the yard sale June 7th.
As I was going through my kitchen piles my sister called and said my 80 year old father was headed to salt lake for emergency surgery on his finger, apparently he had wood chips in it and had thought he had dug it all out. (he's always a do it yourselfer!) He got really really sick during the night and I am so afraid he is full of infection or blood poisoning. His body is in a weak condition as he is diabetic and cant go under surgery easily because of his heart and low blood pressure. So I will be understating that I am very scared right now and I need your prayers on his and my families behalf right now. I must go now to the hospital and will check in if possible this evening.
