A Family Heirloom/Horror

Virginia unearthed a family treasure, a cummerbund her mother stitched for her father. She's making fun of it while wondering if her style choices will seen odd to her kids and grandkids.

Frankly, I don't worry much about what others think about the things I choose to stitch.  I stitch for me, not for posterity.  Besides, who knows?  In fifty years my Day of the Dead lady (which caused my brother to go speechless, which doesn't happen that often) may be the height of fashion again and my heirs will be fighting over who gets to keep her.

Or not.  Who cares!  I had fun stitching her.
