My great aunt was making an inventory in the closets and I asked her, if there were any old needlework pieces survived that were handmade by the women of our family. And here are the results.
This round framed cross stitch flower picture was made by my great grandma in the 1930s. Just love the colour scheme.
The blue and white decorative kitchen towel is also embroidered and crocheted by my great grandmother, probably in the 1920s or 1930s.
The oval shaped lizard doily was embroidered by the sister of my great grandfather possibly around 1900, when she was in her twenties. Pure art nouveau!
