Alma Olsen




..who was she? ....did she made this lovely needlework..!?
I hope, she had a long and happy life

I like to know, that my thrift finds have a story
- it would be so interesting to know some of the stories


I like cross stitch alphabets.
Maybe there are old fashioned, but I like them.
When I see a name on the work, I know, there is a story behind the name.




 I would like to have my own cross stitch alphabet one day.
I like a mix of different fonts like this one from Supertanten.

  1. Hvor er det fint det broderi : ) Bogstaver bogstaver bogstaver, man kan aldrig få nok!!
    Men jeg bliver nødt til at sige at det blinkende Eiffeltårn er lidt forstyrrende for det ellers så smukke billede her på skærmen ; ) Er det ok? Altså at jeg nævner det!
    : )

  2. Det er ok, og du har helt ret! Lige så snart jeg kan få lov til at ændre bare lidt i Blogger igen, så er det blink væk. Det generer mig virkelig.

  3. Thank you for sharing. I agree that it is something beautiful to find a piece of history like that. There is definitely a story there. And the workmanship is beautiful too.

  4. Happy New Year Mette! Beautiful cross stitch. I've never tried it, but I do appreciate all the work (and eye strain!) involved. It is wonderful to have something created by another woman so long ago, and now it is yours to cherish.
