A spectacular embroidered bedspread and how it becomes is the style of this highly visual image book. Artfully it explores in a fresh way the perennial interest of children in the "past times" of a family.Maud and Amelia are 2 old siblings who live at each end of a long, long bed. Although they, disagree about many things, they do agree that their plain white bedspread is the most uninteresting function of their uninteresting life. So they choose to decorate it, each embroidering on it their recollection of your house in which they grew up, Maud, a fine needlewoman, remembers all her stitches: spider stitch, pineapple, bugle, buttonhole, and the others. Amelia has forgotten hers, however she remembers the joy and enjoyment, the people and animals that filled your house. When completed, the bedspread is a surprise, however each treasures it in her own way.This lovely story, which young and old can enjoy together or individually, is a rich feast of satisfaction for the eye and heart.
