Hand done years ago here in Lancaster County, Pa. is this lovely piece just waiting to be made into a pillow or purse or what have you! The unique fabric background is gray colored and reminds me of upholstering material from the 30s or 40s...kind of stiff with a brush like texture. It has a design within the fabric and onto this is a hand stitched basket of colorful flowers. This is called stumpwork and is highly collectible. Many Amish and Mennonites did stumpwork in our area in years past. The background fabric is about 19 1/2" x 18" and it is in nice condition. If you appreciate this type fancywork, do not hesitate to make this one yours. It would also look wonderful framed!!
