A Mother's Day Sampler

Happy Mother's Day to all of you who do the hardest job you'll ever love! I hope that someone spoils you today and that you have a lovely dinner you don't have to cook. That's my idea of a great day!

For Mother's Day I want to share this sampler I did 24 years ago. I remember I finished it right around Mother's Day when my oldest son was just two. Oh time has wings, doesn't it?

This is from Told in a Garden by Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum and is titled Family Treasure II. It is stitched on a khaki color Aida using DMC flosses. I that turquoise and rose color combination matched my bedroom at the time. I love the lacy edge on this piece and the verse still melts my heart.

I count the stitches
Line by line
And watch the thread
Record the time
My eyes were strong
My hand was true
And filled with love
Made this for you

Happy Mother's Day!
