Our EGA Chapter donated a basket of stitched items to raffle at the Sun & Sea Region retreat last weekend. Our theme was “travel”. I had a little kit for a Scottish Thistle bookmark that I bought when on vacation in Scotland in 2016. I thought it was the perfect small addition to the basket. I had already cross-stitched the thistle while living in Virginia. I completed the backstitching on a flight across the Atlantic in 2019, and I did the finishing while vacationing in Rome in 2019. So this is one well-traveled piece of needlework!
