This is my grandmother's stitching!
After years of saying "This ain't your gramma's embroidery" I thought it was time to finally come out with, some of my grandmother's embroidery! My father's mother, Hazel Hart, was born in 1896 and lived next door to us from 1979 until the age of 99 and a half. I always loved this funny toaster cozy she embroidered and snapped a picture of it in my mom's kitchen on a recent visit. I'm sure it's a pattern, but I've always wondered if the droll words weren't my grandmother's own (anyone have this vintage design?). She and dad always did have a wonderfully goofy sense of humor.
