Mellow Yellow Monday - Embroidery

My mellow yellow contribution today is a framed embroidery on the dining room wall

I bought it as an embroidery kit in McAllen Texas back in 1973 for $1.98 at the H.E.Butt grocery store. It took my getting a cold and staying in bed for a few days to get the embroidery all done.
The second time I had it framed it was with a green silk mat set in a bronze gilt wood frame.
Well, that’s my contribution of yellow for today. I hope you enjoyed your visit and that you will return soon. Do visit the other posts at the Mellow Yellow Monday blog.
