It's an art form that ties us with all the women from past generations.
It's easy to envision Pilgrim women, far from home, embroidering near their fireplaces during the first few bitterly cold winters in New England.
It's also nice to think about women riding inside stagecoaches, discovering new territory. At night one might very well have found them stitching by the fires their husbands built to keep their families warm.
One of my own very earliest memories from childhood is of my aunt and her friend, who were probably teenagers at that time, embroidering on round hoops.
I still love anything embroidered but it's not as popular these days as in the past. Whenever there's an estate sale or linens at a flea market or yard sale, I always admire anything embroidered.
