For all its commercialism I am quite fond of Mothers Day. It gives me a chance to make my mum something special and she always loves (of course) getting her little handmade gift. I've been doing a lot of paper stuff recently so I wanted to get away from that for a while and add to her wall of little embroidered paintings (you may remember 2009's effort)
Every time I do one of these I have grand plans to paint an entire garden or woodland studded with hundreds of French knot blossoms.
I'm a slow stitcher and perhaps I should start that now in the hope of finishing it for next Mothers day! RAMONA
