The Mountain House

I was having a tidy up of my sewing room yesterday and found the sampler that I stitched when I was about 6 years old.
My maternal Grandparents had a "Mountain House" in Lawson, NSW where I spent many a holiday.
"Foggy", my Grandmother taught me to cross stitch and bought this sampler for me.

I am off to the Scquilters Bathurst Retreat in May and we will be driving from Sydney through the Blue Mountains.
Lawson is on the way, I can't wait to stop by the old Mountain House to see if it is still there in Mary Street.
The sampler is a bit worse for wear, a little stained.
I treasure the memories of those holidays except for my fear of snakes, which Iam sure started at this house.
