A Mother's Day Love Letter For My Daughter

Crewel Embroidery - Hummel

Usually at Mother's Day I write about the women who shaped me into the person I am - my Mother, Grandmother (Gwennie) and my Great Grandmother (Grammie).

This year I am breaking with "tradition" and sharing a treasured memory about my daughter, Diane.

The sweet little crewel embroidery pictured here was completed by Diane when she was between 11 and 12 years old. And there is a story to be told.

Springtime Wreath Recycle - From Ivy to Rainbows

Grapoe vine wreath with Rainbows and Punched Tin Butterflies

I am loving how this turned out! Inspired by seeing a lovely little tutorial last fall for wrapping a few of the vine sections of a grape vine wreath with colorful embroidery floss - a brilliant and beautiful idea shared by Katie at Duo Fiberworks.
