May 14 th Mother’s Day 

Today is not May 14 th, but what I’m writing about happened on this day . It was a very wonderful day ,for I enjoyed both my mother in law and my mom. One is 13 hrs driving timing and the other 10 1/2 hrs . Slim chance that it will happen again for one is 80 ,though in good health, my mom 76 not so much in good health, but that isn’t the important thing today.

Mom made a set of pillowcases for my son’s wedding and a pillowcase for each of the girls here at home yet.

Russell’s set ….more detail..

And this is what the girls looked like

It is just lovely embroidery, right? And it is lovely ,only there’s more to it than just lovely embroidery. Mom is totally blind in one eye,and very limited sight on the other side. Often one walks with her to guide her when she goes walking. So to do this she wears a magnifying glass around her neck with a very bright light over her work. It is a beautiful sight to see this beautiful old lady in a chair stitching away!!

Bet you had to go back to relook at that stitching.😉

Now back to my stitching as Russell’s quilt top needs to be finished this week.


ps.. daughter LouAnn framed hers … say it was to pretty to use as a pillowcase.

    I was already really peering at the embroidery and thinking, “Was that done by hand?!” What fabulous work, and even more moving because of the extra-hard work to do it! And the pillowcases for the married couple crack me up–even after 27 years, my husband and I still go through that routine!

      Mom always did beautiful embroidery, but I was amazed how even without good vision her work is still beautiful. That was a saying that my parents said ,nice to know that it is still in use.

    It goes to show how much you can do if you put your mind to it. I find good lighting makes an amazing difference. I am encouraged to use a magnifying glass too although I am far away from reaching the stitch quality I see here. Wonderful saying. I often say, “have I told you how much I love you today.” Wonderful inspiring post Deb. We are so blessed.
