Show and Tell Friday is the opportunity to display something that is dear to you that you have in your home or garden. I wanted to partipate in this because I have been blessed with so many things that have been passed down to me.
My first show and tell is a picture of a tablecloth my Maternal Grandmother made when she was 16 years old (1896). She was born in Bolnislan, Sweden and immigrated to the USA in 1907. This is one of the things she brought with her in her immigrants trunk. This type of embroidery is called “bondesom”. It is a solid stitch done in bright colors. People in the mountains loved bright colors. It is in perfect condition and only wished I could ask her how long it took her to make it:)
