ET Hall - Cross Stitch Book - Cards and Gift Tags for most occasions

In Memory of Ellen T Hall. (formally ET Riksman) 6/61942 - 25/5/2013

Hi Cross Stitch Enthusiasts, I'm Michelle Dorothy Riksman, Ellen's daughter. My mother had a certain elegance and strength that I have admired since I was a little girl. I've also spent my life in awe of her artisanship in all its forms. Tapestry, knitting, crochet, needlework, beading, pottery, ceramics, painting, and drawing were lifelong interests.

 

 

 

Rembrandt

In later years, cross-stitch presented her with countless projects and many years of amusement and pleasure, creating Cards and Gift Tags for most occasions. Now you can express every sentiment imaginable through your handiwork. Mum's hands were never idle, embroidery her constant companion. Below I share with you a petite collection of her precision work.
