So anyway, on the wall is Mum's USA sampler she embroidered circa 1973. Our initial move to the US from the UK was to be a 2 year temporary stay. We took advantage of being 'overseas' and tried to see as much as we could on a minimal budget. Camping was the way to go. On a month long trip from Michigan to Florida Mum dutifully worked away, stitching the motifs from the areas as we visited them. Look for the red dot in the 'hand' of Michigan to denote where we lived at the time.
Today we'll tackle our daughters' room, where Grandma will be sharing the bunk bed - if we can find it under the pile of plush toys!!
Oh, and that 2 year temporary stay? We never returned to live in the UK.
