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.
I can’t think of a clever caption for this
Counted cross stitch map of Martha’s Vineyard
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.
