To My Other Mother

Mothers day has come and gone, but as I hadn’t seen my mother in law (MIL) since before Mothers Day, she received her pressie this weekend.

It’s a mini wall quilt I stitched up for her. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t hoping for a little tear or 2 when I gave it to her.

 

To My Other Mother

 

I found this lovely poem online a few months ago, and thought it would work well as a stitchery. I typed it up in a word document and chose a font which would translate well into a stitchery. I increased the font size and printed it up.

 

These fabrics and colours are really not my usual style, but I know that Sue likes this look and it matches her furniture well. It is bordered in an older range of fabric which I received in a travelling swap. It is a mini charm pack of Garden Party by Blackbird Designs.

 

 

Now… her birthday is coming up in August… what will I make?

  6. As the mother of three grown sons I must say that poem made me get a little teary eyed. What size is this mini?

    1. I’m pleased with tears (is that bad?)

      It’s approximately 12” wide by 18” long.
