My grandma attached this paper about her needlepoint on the back. It came off, but I saved it.
Her needlepoint was based on a painting called "Grandmother's Bridal Crown" by Adolph Tidemand, which was painted in 1869. My grandma's information that the artist died in 1845 wasn't correct. Unfortunately, she didn't have access to the internet in 1979 when she stitched it to research it like I do now. :)
Here is a picture of my grandma and I on Mother's Day in 1975.
Maybe she was working on her needlepoint during this time? It's so big I'm sure it took her quite awhile to finish!
