Our Beautiful World - Stitch/es

 
This weeks theme at
is
'Stitch/es'
 
My very talented mum, can do anything with her hands,
and before my children were born, she made them beautiful woollen embroidered blankets and even though they are 18 yrs plus - her labour of love is beautiful....
 
 
And there may be a few loose stitches now, loved and worn over time....





 
 
Some stitches are made with silk ribbon, some are wound knots over and over...




 







 






 
And on another very loved blanket... this cute little teddy bear (this one is over 20yrs old)
 
 
Share your  'stitch/es' photography stories

Wow! Those stitches were a labor of love and so well cared for after all these years! I'm tickled pink about the word prompt this week and the lovely projects we all get to share and see.

OMGoodness, what labors of love, indeed! Your mother is amazing! I can see why the girls love these sweet blankets! As one who has dabbled in embroidery myself, I can truly appreciate the time and love poured into these!
