Happy Birthday Mom

Yesterday was my Mom's birthday and I really wanted to give her something very special. I stitched up La D Da's pattern that has the verse of "I Love You a Bushel and Peck" which was a song that my mom sang to me when I was a baby. I think I really surprised her.

The finisher did the most amazing job of quilting this into a pillow. Attached are some antique buttons which really helped to make this even more special. Thank you Debra...



I cannot wait to head out this weekend to my LNS. I have more finishing to pick up. It feels like Christmas trying to wait until Saturday to drive out and see everything finished. Plus, it will be even more fun to see what new items they have in from market. Charge.....

Hello Babs. I am new to your blog. I have read all the post and your cross stitch is beautiful !! That pillow for your mom is wonderful. I have the chart but, I had not thought of a pillow for the finish. April in Alabama

Your Mama looks quite pleased with it! I'd be pleased as a peacock too with such a pretty present!
