Vintage Paula Vaughan Aunt Verdi's Porch Leisure Arts Needlepoint Cross Stitch Pattern
This tranquil picture is of a quilt laying on a rocking chair next to a chair holding a basket with a hat hanging on it. A spool of thread on the floor, two pots of flowers in the corner, a nice cozy setting on a front porch. Reminds you of days of old. A great picture for any room of the house.
