This is my mom, Carol. She's the one who taught me to cross stitch when I was a young girl. She also re-introduced me to cross stitch when it went from stamped to counted in 1981. Time passed and I became a designer and my mom kept on stitching but she was disappointed that she never learned to stitch on linen. She was diagnosed with macular degeneration yet found a way to compensate for the vision change and kept on stitching. Well after her last project finish she asked for another lesson on linen and this time, with macular and an age just this side of 80, she's doing it! She's always enjoyed a challenge.
