place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile.
Remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
but there's an ache within my heart
that will never go away.
My Beautiful Mother-In-Law, "Helen"
As I was laying in bed this morning enjoying my breakfast and playing on the computer, I remembered a cross stitch I made for my mother for Mother's Day many years ago. I thought I would share some photos of it with you today:
This is a pattern from Bent Creek called "Mom and Dad" that I stitched up using my own version of hand dyed threads. I had it framed in an antique frame that I had cut down to size. I love the marbled purple/gold mat along with the eggplant suede mat that compliments the finish. I added alot of Mill Hill charms and antique glass beads. You can click on the photos to supersize them. I have added some butterflies, tulips and little flowers to personalize it "my style".
