Island…

This is a no-brainer for me 🙂  My blog started because of my obsession for my favorite place on earth, the island of Martha’s Vineyard.

My mother was raised on the Vineyard and I made my first trip there when I was less than a year old.  There are many, many things I could write inabout Martha’s Vineyard but I’m afraid this post would get really, really lengthy so I’m posting pictures of this beautiful map that I received in 1960.

This hand colored print was done in 1926 by painter, illustrator and cartoonist, Lloyd Coe. I love the details and bits of historical information.

The Flying Horses – Oak Bluffs, Martha’s Vineyard

https://mvobsession.files.wordpress.com/2018/06/100_2174-5.jpg?w=820

After arriving on the Vineyard each summer of my childhood one of the first orders of business was going to the Flying Horses the oldest carousel in the United States, they came to the Island in 1884 from Coney Island.

The Flying Horses are not a carousel, or a merry-go-round, they don’t go up and down just round and round. They are flying horses, like Pegasus, and fly to wherever you can imagine . They don’t actually have wings, but as you make the first circuit you feel like you’re about to fly out the open windows.

Counted cross stitch map of Martha’s Vineyard

IMG_8085 (2)

My map of Martha’s Vineyard was my very first attempt at counted cross stitching back in 1993. Since then I have done at least 9 of these for family members and a few special friends.

 

 

This is my wall of Vineyard cross stitches, and it all started with that one map of the Island.
