MV Obsession

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

Mine and My Mother’s…



I’ve done a lot of these counted cross stitch maps of the Vineyard and each one has been for a special person. This particular one was for my daughter Patty for Christmas 2008. Imagine my surprise when I looked in a long forgotten box and found the one below done by another very special person in my life…

… my mother. She must have done this over 80 years ago and it is in amazingly good condition. Thank you mom for a beautiful surprise.


Turns out we both did Gay Head Lighthouse …

Hers which has the light housekeepers house attached to it…




…which is part of the 5 lighthouses of Martha’s Vineyard

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. Hope you enjoy :)
