Looking back on this stitching project, I try not to notice all the embroidery faux pas I made. Don't look too closely or you might be able to see the gaps in the border stitching or the bumpy places where the giant knots are in the back, and I'm sure I was ignorant of the whole direction-of-stitches guidelines. Even so, it was a satisfying finish. What I love most of all is that I made it for someone I love and it hangs on the wall in my parents' house where my mom can be continually reminded of how much I love and appreciate her.
I wish all mothers everywhere a bit of rest and relaxation on their special day (goodness knows we all need it!). Happy Mother's Day!
How do you celebrate Mother's Day? Food? Fun? Handmade? I'd love to hear your ideas.
