So last post I promised to show you something really cool, and I intend to keep that promise!
Back in ’84, I was born. (yes, that’s right) And my mom, with a ginormous pregnant belly, embroidered an entire alphabet for me, lil’ baby winkie! I remember it hanging in my room when I was little, and in the hallway when I was older. And then sitting in the attic when I was a lot older… And then ending up in a moving box somewhere, years later. Anyway, long story short, my mom gave it to me last weekend, when we were there to celebrate the first day of the year. I’m so happy to have gotten it! :)
I can only imagine the time it must have taken her, because upon closer examination, the details are just amazing. Check this out!
I remember I loved the letter ‘M’ best when I was little. Probably because my name starts with an M ;) I tried to convince my mom to give me a black cat because of it, but that didn’t fly ;)
Nowadays, these two are my favorites. The one with the flute because, well, I play the flute and I just love that little guy! And the second one because I love those teeny tiny drops of water :)
Can you believe the work that must have gone into this? :O I sure can’t! But my mom’s really a trooper. She has recently picked up crochet too! And I gotta say, she is *really* good at it. Like, REALLY good. She makes clothes for herself, by using crochet. I mean, how awesome is that! :) I’ll be sure to snap a few pictures of what she makes next time I’m over there. You’re going to love seeing it!
Anyway, I’m off. I’m making serious progress on my IKEA footstool, and I hope to finish it this weekend! Here are some instagrams of the progress so far. Enjoy! :)
