A Simple Tribute

Today is the 6th year since my dear Mom's passing. So I thought it would be nice to dedicate this post in her honor. She was a teacher by profession but became a fulltime homemaker when she married Dad. A good knitter, she also took up sewing classes (I remember the sweaters and matching outfits she did for me and my sis, the table runners, the curtains, etc.) How I wish I learned those skills. But moms are always there to support where your heart is really into...
This is my first finished cross stitch effort (can't remember how old I was then). She had it framed right away and put it in their bedroom where it hangs to this day (where my dad sees it just above the mirror). Since then I would stitch presents for her, she loved garden themes. Her pride and joy in my craft added to my happiness in stitching. Oh, I'm getting emotional now. I just love and miss her so. Thanks Mom for everything...


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss. My mother lost her mom a few years ago now and it hurts still everyday. She sounds like a wonderful woman.

  2. Sorry for your loss I'm really close to my mom as well. I lost my grandma about 10 years ago and she was like a mother to me. Your mom sounds like a great lady. I'm glad you got to share something with her.

  3. She sounds like a lovely lady and the first piece you did is wonderfully framed. You can still learn those sewing skills; I think she would be happy whatever you did. :D

  4. what a wonderful and beautiful tribute to your mum! and such a beautiful picture you made. memories to treasure forever! no one can take them from you.

  5. Ooh sweetie, huge hugs to you!!! What a sweet & emotional post xx
    Love your first finish & the fact it has a special place in your family home :)
