Mom. . . . .

I am so blessed to still have my mom and have her in my life.  We chat on the phone every singe day (sometimes more than once!) and catch up on family things, chat about our day, and now even talk about stitching.  As many of you know from an earlier post, my mom is stitching on linen at the age of 78. She just just learned this year and has already completed a number of projects.  The one I want to share here is a model she stitched for me called "Simple Joys".  It was also her first experience with overdyed thread and I must tell you that she is spoiled already!  The model is beautiful as she has always been a very neat and pretty stitcher.  I am so proud to share this snippet with you and showcase my mom's work!
I've displayed the finish in my home where I can see it every day!  This design and the other two will ship at the end of this week.
Mom has stitched a few more models that will appear here and on Nikki's web site later on.  Right now she is hard at work on the Rose Quaker and loving it.

  3. Your Mom is lovely Diane and that is a beautiful photo of the two of you. I picture my daughter and I in years to come and treasure my relationship with her now. Well done to your Mom stitching on linen and her work is so lovely. I plan to still be stitching and sewing at her age, what a wonderful example she is. All the very best to both of you.

  11. Your mother's stitching is wonderful. The design looks like a "must have". How special that you have her first piece to cherish and gaze upon and it's one that was designed by you.

  12. Diane, your mom certainly doesn't look 78 !!! Her stitching is beautiful... Aren't moms just wonderful? There is something very comforting about stitching, knitting, crocheting with mom, isn't there?
