Stitching by my Mom

Please click to enlarge & read the cute signs my Mom added. My favorite is the cat! But, it is totally clever & creative.

This is my Mom's Round Robin / Friendship Sampler. The stitchers are members of Needle Artisans of Northwest Indiana.

This week-end is The Threads That Bind needlwork exhibit held in Munster, Indiana [details on the web site, link above]. Saturday & Sunday 10am - 4pm. It is my understanding there will be 240+ projects on display stitched by the EGA chapter members. Along with the exhibit will be a boutique - stitchie goodies for sale.

I am dropping off my Mother's exhibit pieces on Friday late afternoon. Lucky me, she is picking up everything on Sunday afternoon.

I took pictures of her entries and will load all the images into a photo album later this morning.

Wanted to share this:

My Aunt passed away a couple years ago. Her scissors were given to my Mother. My Mother used Forget Me Not freebie from the Drawn Thread web page to create a fob & scissors sheath for my Aunt's scissors. What a special keepsake!

Oh my gosh, the fob and scissor pocket for your aunt's scissors is so heart-touching! What a wonderful tribute.

Your mom's RR has me cracking up - my mom is a realtor and I have to point this out to her!

I want to add that the scissors is a special treasure - but your mom's fob and scissors sheath makes it even more special!
