Back when I was still in college, I would often go garage saling with my mom and sister. One day, I found two table runners. (I only have pictures of one of them.) They are both linen and hand cross-stitched. Looking around for interesting things to post about, this caught my eye. I am guessing that these are at least 50 years old, but probably older as the lady who sold them to me was old and said that her aunt (or mother or someone closely related to her) had made them. It goes to show that you never know what you are going to find when you are hunting (as we call garage saling and thrifting).
I am married to a wonderful man and we have six children ages 10 and younger. I stay home with my kids and homeschool three of the children. It is a lot of work, but we love our busy home and all that God has given us!
