MV Obsession

My obsession with Martha's Vineyard.. phototography..genealogy and life in general and this and that…

Our Cross Stitches …


My mother did these two counted cross stitches over 80 years ago.

Gay Head Lighthouse still had the lighthousekeepers house attached to it.



Only 4 lighthouses instead of 5 on the Vineyard map – do you know which one is missing?



My counted cross stitch of Gay Head lighthouse done in 2004.


My map done in 1993.  Which lighthouse is missing on mine ?



(Edgartown lighthouse is missing on moms.. East Chop on mine)

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. I'm also into genealogy and reading. Hope you enjoy :)

  1. Beautiful stitches! These are all so charming….have you hung them all together?


  2. I love these–such beautiful keepsakes from your mother. And your work is wonderful as well. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Do you know where I can find the lighthouses pattern? Our maybe you still have a copy? Im not having any luck finding it. My great grandfather was a light keeper at Gay Head (a very long time ago) ands I saw this hanging in a friend’s home ands fell in love. Sadly they don’t have the pattern either. Any help would be appreciated.
