Buster - Boston Terrier cross-stitch design

| 8 Comments


Pattern: Boston Bull Terrier
Book: "Dogs - Dogs - Dogs" - Leaflet SUM-210 - Designs by Mary Ellen - Copyright 1982 - Summit Designs
Date: Completed early-mid 1980s; photo taken April 2003.

I made this cross-stitch Boston Terrier for Grandma Dorie (my Mom's mother) in the early 1980s. The pattern book was published in 1982 and Dorie died in late April 1986, so it was done somewhere between 1982-1986. About 20 years ago...it doesn't seem that long.

Buster was the Boston Terrier my Mom had early in her marriage to my father. When they got stationed in Guam (I think it was), she gave Buster to her mother and father. Buster was Dorie's constant companion and baby. He died before I created the cross-stitch design for her.

After Dorie died, Grandpa Paul (my Mom's father) hung the framed design in each of the houses he lived in. It hung on the wall of his room at the assistive living facility where he lived for months before he died in March 2002.

My Mom now has Buster hanging in her computer room of her home. This photo was taken in April 2003 at my Mom's home.

Small world... I also made this Boston Terrier cross stitch for my mom. It took me almost one year. My four kids were under the age of 6 when I did this project. I finished it and had it framed in time for Christmas and my mom just adored it. Sadly, she passed away a month later and the picture was still on the living room couch where she had unwrapped it. I took the picture home with me and it has has hung in every home I've lived in since 1988, including my newest home in Michigan.

Hi, Leslie - Thank you so much for your story. My mom still has hers hung on a wall, along with the two clown cross-stitch faces I made for her.
