How Much Of My Grandmother Is Still Here? Stitches

Today I'm in a determined mode because I want to get far enough on this piece and Foggy Crystal to be satisfied. I leave on vacation tomorrow. The Grandmother piece took an unexpected turn because I have begun to stitch their portraits. It's like an homage to them, neither of which I knew well. I have pictures of them when they're young that I'm working with. My red/blond grandmother bequeathed me her hair color. I remember being very small and watching with fascination when she'd unwind her hair and comb it at the end of the day. It was beautiful. My other grandmother died long before I was born and so I have only this one picture of her. It is very like being linked to them as I stitch and wonder what they were like.
