"Happy Day For You" (Freebie) For Belated Mother's Day

Finally I can show you this finished piece! whew...
Here is "Happy day for you" (Freebie) © Plum Street Samplers, I stitched this for Mother's day (10th of May) and could finish stitching in time, but finishing work took me much time, as I don't like and am not good on sewing machine...

I stitched this pattern on lavender colour linen (28ct DMC #3743), some thread colours were changed to fit this colour linen.

There was no nice wall in this house (lol, I mean they are old!), so I took photos on the piano, therefore not so good to see the entire piece, sorry.

I sewed linen picot lace both sides of the stitched piece, and added lavender colour lace on the bottom of it and also the fabric which I used for the background.

On the pole of tapestry, I put organza ribbon flower, too.
I gave this to my mum and now it's hanging on the wall of hall way.


Here is a photo which was taken with candle light...

Actually "Mum's the word..." is now in a WIP box and I don't feel like stitching it as I have to undo and re-stitch whole tree in the chart...
So mum, "Mum's the word..." will be for the next year, lol

Oh, a father's day is waiting for me in the next month, but it's OK, he can wait for me for a long long time as he is now in the heaven.
But dad, I will stitch for you, too! Wait for me, please! :D

Take care and thanks for your visit!
And happy stitching!!

Yuko, this is a delightful piece ! Your Mum must have been very pleased.
My Dad is gone too, but like you, I still stitch for him, or at least his memory is with me while I stitch - it is a nice feeling.
