Pinboard love 2

Keeping a watchful eye over proceedings at Lyssy May HQ is this copy of a picture of my great grandmother on her wedding day. It wasn't until after I had named my business that I learnt her name was 'Elsie May' and she was apparently an amazingly talented craftswoman. I would dearly loved to have known her but do feel a little of her legacy is stitched into every Lyssy May design!
