Holly Hobbie

You know what they say.  Everything that is old is new again.  I was perusing Facebook one day and came across a fabric store that had Holly Hobbie fabric.  It brought back memories of when my daughter was little and she loved Holly Hobbie.  She's 43 now but I still have her Holly Hobbie pillowcase safely tucked away.

I had saved lots of her things thinking one day she would not only be a great mom, but a mom to girls.  Well, two boys later and you know how that goes.

I'm trying to get rid of some of the clutter before the Hoarder people from television knock on my door. I came across this sweet needlework that my mother-in-law made for Dory.  It's in pristine condition and is 11" x 14".  Her needlework skills are exquisite and the picture in no way does it justice.

I'm offering it for sale for $30.  It would make a great picture for a little girls's room.  It could also be used as a center medallion for a quilt.

If you are interested just leave me a comment and I will contact you.  It's a shame that it is just sitting here when some little girl might love it.

In the meantime, have a great week!!!

*Holly has sold and is going to a new home right here in Colorado!

Awww, it's so cute Miss Jean! I wish I had a little girl to purchase it for -- sadly, I fall in the same category as your daughter -- a girl's mom who has boys!

It is a very pretty needlework, Jean. My daughter prefers to use shades of lavender to decorate my granddaughter's room. She was never a fan of the color pink, even as a little girl. I hope this piece finds a good home with someone who will love it!
