I baked a heart shaped chocolate Birthday cake for my youngest child.
Made her favorite food (pizza) and decorated with streamers and banners.
Hard to believe the children are growing so fast. #3 daughter and I sat and
chatted last night and she shared her dreams and goals with me. I wish I was
half as “together”, when I was her age!
My children give me “Hope” for a better
a little gift I stitched….
I found a replica 1930’s Tea towel and was trying to figure out what to stitch on it ???????
Eureka! I had my idea for the tea towel :)
The inspiration for this piece came from my Christmas cards:
Note: When I first saw the card I thought it was funny and clever. I actually enjoy
fruit cake with rum sauce. That was an annual gift from my Mother.
She did not make it but, ordered it and had it sent.
Anyway, back to the card, the picture shows a family, including the dog
throwing fruitcake into a cut out hole in the ice…lol!
More inspiration came from this book:
I can not say enough good things about this book by Janet Bolton.
It is a valuable tool for stitching and so easy to read. She gives thorough descriptions of
“how to” stitch with loads of ideas and patterns.
I am stitching the word “Fruitcake” on this piece and then I will be framing it.
The book by Janet Bolton tells you how to mat and frame your quilt pieces.
Have a lovely week!
