I’ve done a lot of these counted cross stitch maps of the Vineyard. 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 a 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 as well …

Hers which has the lighthousekeepers house attached to it…
