I love my Mom...

so much that I stitched a sampler in honor of her and gave it to her for Christmas. It's my newest release called "Mother's Tribute". It's a quote from Abraham Lincoln. "Everything I am or hope to be I owe to my angel Mother."

I changed "angel" to precious because it fit within the design better. I don't think Abe would mind. The sentiment is still the same! I share my birthday with Lincoln so this sampler is extra personalized for me. You could even stitch your mom's name at the bottom instead of A. Lincoln (unless of course your mom IS A. Lincoln!) It's a quick stitch, so you can get it done in time to give it to your Mom for Mother's Day. I love my Mom and I'm proud to say that she's my best friend. (and now she's famous!)

It's Easter and the SON is shining!

This has been such a beautiful Easter weekend! A bit windy and cool but the bright sunshine makes up for it. Yesterday was truly a blessed day as I got to meet a promising new cross stitch designer who lives just a few hours away from me. Holly is a truly WONDERFUL person and I am grateful that the Lord had His hand in allowing us to meet. We met at a coffee shop in a shopping mall that was about the half-way point for both of us. I don't drink coffee, but I enjoyed the most DELICIOUS Chai Latte. Of course the conversation was delightful and the 3 hours we visited flew by quickly. Holly shared some of her sampler creations with me and they are GREAT! I know when she's ready to share them with the stitching world, you'll love them too! I wish you many blessings on this Resurrection Sunday. You can't keep a good man down.....HE IS RISEN!
