Love You, Mom by Bent Creek

Yesterday, finally "Love You, Mom" © Bent Creek has finished!
It's quite smaller than I thought, but it took long time to finish, whew...
After I framed, I run to post office with my son and sent this out to my mum as belated Mother's Day gift, with some CDs!

I used ready-made frame which was in my stash, so it's not so good, as you can see it reflections...
But she called me as soon as it arrived to her, and told me she does like it so much, and sounded that I made her day brighten up!
Now I feel relief and am very glad to hear that she liked it!


This time I used overdyed threads, as my mum likes the reulst by stitching overdyed threads, but I'm not used to stitching with them, that's why it took time so long until complition.

The recommends colours seemed totally different with the sample photo, so I changed some colours.
And primary, there should be three hearts buttons besides the word "MOTHER", but I didn't have recommended hearts buttons nor suitable one for this design, so I stitched pink hearts instead of atattching the buttons!

If I disclose my real motive, now I'm giving a sigh of relief...
I like this design and wanted to present it for my mum very much though, to stitch along this was actually not so fun... (lol)
Now I can change my mind and can try another project! Yahoo!

Next one? It probably be "Biscornu" for May challenge (Monthly Finishing Challenge)!
Or another thing, now I just want to make small one, something like pinkeep or thread keeper!

Yuko, how funny. I made the same thing for my mom for Mother's Day. I forgot to take a picture of mine though. Maybe this weekend. Harvest Basket looks nothing as pictured! I used WDW Chestnut and Hazelnut for my browns and I liked how it turned out. I like your stitched pink hearts!

It sounds as though you made your mother's day with this beautiful gift, and I'm sure she would have understood it arriving late after seeing the effort you've gone to. It's absolutely lovely and the frame suits it well.

Will email you over the weekend for another chat!

Dear Yuko,
what a wonderful gift had you made for your Mum, she will like it very much, I am sure!
I like the pattern of Bent Creek very much too, but I don't have anyone, I don't know why...?
Wish you a happy weekend with sunny moments
