This Baby Board was made by my great grandparents Frank & Estelle Duval. My great grandpa cut the board and my great grandmother completed the sewing and bead work. It is the second baby board they made. It is the one I grew up seeing the most frequently so I feel a strong attachment to this treasure.
It currently hangs on my grandmother’s living room wall. My Aunt Vicki is constantly trying to talk my grandma into moving it to her wall instead. So far my grandma has held her ground. I’m guessing that one of these days I’ll see it on Aunt Vicki’s wall.
This baby board is one of the many amazing items my great grandmother beaded. I think her work is beautiful, meticulous, and so intricate. Below are some close up shots to show off the fine details. You can click to enlarge.
I am in awe of my great grandmother’s many talents. She was amazing!
