A Gift from My Mom!




In My Father's House by By the Bay Needlearts

Many times I often lament that other's never stitch anything for me (not true!) However, I try to use this to guilt my mother who stitches beautifully into giving me whatever she has stitched! LOL It doesn't usually work, however for once I was very surprised and got exactly what I wanted! This is In My Father's House by By the Bay Needleart. It was stitched on 36 count cream linen. My mom can also see better than I can as well! I don't know what threads, though I believe it's DMC. Isn't it beautiful! I will treasure it forever! Thanks Mom!


My Mom!

I have been stitching very little, I have been really busy and work last week was killer! I have been working on The Flock-trying to finish up part 3 before part 6 comes out and I started a new one called Cottage Charm Sampler by Threadwork Primitives. So hopefully, I can get a picture posted of it soon! I have also been distracted by new potential projects including this one that has come to the top of my list by Shakespeare's Peddler and it Ragamuffin #2 A Quaker Sampler and you can see a picture of it here. I love it. I am also loving the new Loose Feather's piece called Sarah's House!  

I also wanted to point you in the direction of a new blogger, my friend Tina! You can find her here at Barentina's and Ginger's Place.  So head on over and give her a warm welcome to the blogging world!

Last but definitely not least, thanks so very much for the kind words regarding my Elenor Ferrow finish! I appreciate your words and visits more than you can know! I am off to stitch!

Blessings my friends! xoxo

Hey darling. What a beautiful piece as is your Mom. I love this bible verse. I had often hear my father preach on this verse in the bible and I remember it all very well too.
Bravo!!!! I would love to see the finish you put on it.

Blessings darling.

What a treasure! Your mom looks so sweet.
A few years back, my mom did an embroidery in red work and ran out of the thread it came with. She tried to match it up, but it was a dark fuchsia instead of the dark red. It looks like it was stitched years ago and faded. It's so special to me. (She has macular degeneration now).
