Cross-stitch 1953 Studebaker and Old Home

Back in the days when my eyes worked the right way I did lots of cross stitching then I got into doing graphs for myself and others this was probably one of the hardest ones I ever did for a lady whose husband collected these old cars. This is the picture that I worked from and below the actual graph I came up with .




My colored pencil selection was few and I am not the greatest color-er



This was one of the most amazing houses that I did. The graph does not do it justice and I wish I would have made a copy of the picture that I worked off of. What I do know about this house is that it is located in upper state New York I remember it being in a wooded area it was absolutely beautiful. The gal that I made the graph for lived here in Utah. This was a house that belonged to some friends, it is one picture I wish I could have seen completed. As I studied the pictures of this home there was an image that I noticed in one of the top floor windows, there appeared to be a man dressed in period clothing it really looked like a ghost! When I met with the gal to give her the graph I asked her if she had ever noticed this image in the window. She could not believe her eyes has we talked about it she said the people who owned this home had grown up around this house as children, and they had thought it was haunted . And now they own it and a spend their time restoring it.
