“Mother’s Love is Like a Fragrant Rose With Sweetness in Every Fold”
Mother's Love

For mother’s day, I finished this vintage linen cross-stitch sampler for my mom.  My maternal grandmother started this sampler many, many years ago, before she passed away.  She had done the orange stitching.

When I was young and just starting to embroider, my mom went through her box of unfinished projects and among others, she handed me this one to practice on. I must have been only about eight or nine at the time, but even then I knew how special it was and I couldn’t undo the orange stitches (although at the time I didn’t like the color).  I didn’t know what colors I wanted to add to it, so it went untouched on the bottom of my sewing basket for years.

Now, many years later, it’s finally finished.

Love you MOM!  — From me and grandma.
