Wedding Pocket

Sept. 5, 2013


Thank you all for taking the time to leave such nice comments about my grandbaby.
Mom, Dad and Baby are doing great!

I wanted to share with you my Wedding Pocket as I work on it.
After looking at my photo I noticed I made a mistake down at the very bottom 
left center using the dark blue instead of the light blue.
I will post some information for those that cannot read the print on the box.

Sarah Leonard was born May 6, 1766 in Warwick, Massacusetts.
This pocket was one of a pair embroidered before marriage on 
December 15, 1786 to David Mayo.
They lived in Warwick, where they kept a store, a public house
and a toll gate.
This pocket is large measuring 18" long and 13" at the widest point.

Hope you all have a WONDERFUL day!
xoxo Louise
