Some time ago my parents gave me a bag full of embroidery from my grandmother (she died years ago). She loved cross stitch. The house was filled with cross stitch pictures and her couch (and ours) was filled with cross stitch pillow. In the bag were some unfinished pieces. She wasn't able to do the finer work when she got older. I think she started this to give to my sister who loved horseback riding (she still does and her daughter too). I'm going to try and finish it.
