The first one is quite an old one - it was for Legacy BB Quaker Exchange XII and I loved stitching this, especially the over one I did on the back of it for the heading and initials but my photo taking leaves much to be desired. At least I put a cloth on the table.
So what the photo above is, is the replacement Quaker that I stitched for Legacy Quaker Exchange XIII. Sorry but I didn't take a photo of the first one I stitched, you would have thought I would have learned my lesson from not taking photos of other things that I have stitched over the past 10 years and have given away and now I have no record of them. But I guess I'll never learn - read below.
Here is the back of it which I actually prefer ...
and it's next to a paperweight that my great-grandfather made. It was one of 10 or 12 (I can't remember how many children there were - it was a long time ago and in another country) and he made one for each of his children and I got left my late father's one which must have been left to my father by my grandmother (his mother who passed away when I was only one) originally because it was her father that actually made them and it is really glorious to look at and very large and heavy and I have loved it immensely since I was a small child. It has prisms of colors in it.
Anyway that's all from me for now - will write again soon.
