What a bummer when I put together a 1,000 piece puzzle and 3 pieces were missing. It is called Americana by Charles Wysocki. I decided to divide the puzzle and frame pieces separately. It was this or throw my puzzle away.
I washed and ironed this pretty vintage sheet. It will fit a full or queen bed nicely.
If you have needlework that carries sentimental value, display it with other family heirlooms and create a quiet mood for that special corner.

About

Hello There, It's Nice to Meet You!

My studio in Wausau, Wisconsin is filled with everything I love which inspires me to create. Moosemom opened on Etsy in March of 2009 selling my handmade crafts and things vintage. I go by Moosemom because I'm a nature lover and am especially fond of moose. I'm a mother and grandmother so Moosemom seemed an appropriate and short name for my shop.

I love old needlework and rescue and restore any type of needlework and resell it to a good home. I also have a love of anything old and antique and try to intermingle these vintage items with my handmade items.

I ran a cross stitch design business under the name Something In Common for about ten years ending in 2007. That was my dream job until the crafting industry took off in different directions. Now, in this store, you'll see that I'm selling some of my old cross stitch models and patterns. I retired from customer service in 2013 and now devote my time to running Moosemom, writing, reading and stitching.

These days I lead a fairly simple life without the distraction of many voices or noise from machines. I can work when I want and as hard as I want. The forays for vintage and trips to the post office keep me active and writing poetry invigorates my senses. I still love to cross stitch and a part of my day is set aside for that. The business interactions help keep me social and my family and cat, well, they keep life real.

    I am a retired customer service representative and business owner. Before retirement I ran my own cross stitch design company. I love my current vintage/handmade business on Etsy as it keeps me happy and busy in retirement.
