Today is my mom’s birthday, she turns 70 today. Happy, happy, happy birthday mom. I hope you not only have a great day but a wonderful year ahead of you. I have taken today off to help her out, she’s having family and friends over at their house and an extra pair of hands would be helpful :).
I couldn’t let this milestone pass without stitching something for her. Every year mom forbids me to stitch something, and obedient daughter that I am, I pretty much ignore her protests and do what I think I should do. If there is anybody who deserves a stitched gift it would be her. As she loves lilies of the valley, I picked a small design (for once I was realistic about what I could accomplish in little time LOL) and stitch her a floss tag. Here’s a picture of the front:
And here’s the back. The graph is a freebie on this website. Just scroll down a little. I used 36ct raw Edinburg for it and my new love in silks: Soie de Paris. The Soie de Paris was wonderful to stitch with, more about that later this week.
I just hope she likes it, she wasn’t really sure about my own floss tags, but now that she’s seeen several, she is getting more used to them :).
