Welcome To Pilgrims and Pioneers!

After many years of researching my family geneaology I have been lucky enough to discover actual information about my relatives that lived in the Pilgrim Era and the Pioneer Era- while many people also have realtives from those eras- many do not know their names or where they lived- actually seeing the proof in print makes you much more aware of who they really were.
After discovering these relatives it of course made me curious to learn more about the eras that they lived in and what their lives were like as, the history I learned in grade school had long since been forgotten.
I decided to start this blog for others who are also interested in these eras.
Some of the information here will be actual facts about my realtives and some will be information about the eras in general that I have found on the web.
I hope you will enjoy traveling back in time with me!

The Goose Girl

Back in the 80's & early 90's my husband was an avid cross stitcher.
I am not sure of the name of this but we have always called her " The Goose Girl".
She is fairly large- framed in a custom frame 14" x 17".
He did not intial & date it like he should have but I think it was stitched about 22 years ago.
I tried to edit the flash reflection but could not with out losing part of the stitched piece.
This is probably my favorite out of the many items he stitched- no matter my decorating style she will always be displayed somewhere!

That's an amazing piece of needlework! My old eyes won't let me crossstitch any longer but once I loved to, but never attempted such an advanced piece as The Goose Girl. One great thing about that piece, is that the colors are very prim and can go with so many ways of decorating!

That is a beautiful piece of cross stitch!! He did a wonderful job and I can see why you are proud of it.
It looks like the design may be by the same woman who did various large angels designs also.

Thanks! I think the designer did do some beautiful angels too.
