This is interesting...it looks like a fabric pillow top that is finished with a 'woodburning' tool. How can that be. Has anyone ever heard of this? Maybe someone's Gram would know. I've just been looking through my 1906 Ladies Home Journal. The needlework is astounding. What skills they had back then. Of course, no tv or movies or computers. That would help to have time to do needlework. But then again, no electricity perhaps, I guess that would depend on where you lived. My Mum had no electricity when she was at home....and tv was still around the corner. She rememebers 'surrey's with the fringe on top.....I'm having a busy day today, its another golden autumn day, scorching hot awhile ago, as I sat on the front porch eating an frozen yogurt cone, basking in the heat and trying not to sit to far back on the rocker, on which was a deceased worm. Oh well, thats reality....I enjoyed my porch break anyway!
