A Stitching Together of History.

Last weekend I was at Fabric Depot looking for some 
fabric to recover our overworn sofa,
and I met this woman who was shopping for a backing
to her Great Aunt's President quilt.
I believe the Great Aunt's name was Mildred 
and she had hand embroidered every single Presidents face
on this fantastic quilt.  I myself am not a big 
"President girl" but I LOVED this stitching.

Here is Woodrow Wilson,
LOVE the glasses.
Mildred was 98 years old when she stitched this,
and is now over 100.
I hope I get to live as long as Mildred,
and create up until my last breath.
