Last year I stitched "Love You, Mom" © Bent Creek for my mum, and this year I choose this design for her "Mum's the Word..." © Primrose Needleworks.
I have been working on spinning threads on bobbin as how I organized threads were not good idea for a lazy person like me, I was putting threads them in plastic bags like small ZipLock, and put them in the boxes.
But this idea wasn't really good TO me, I couldn't find what I want to find and so bought threads and at the end so many same colours were found in the box... silly me!
So now I can't find the recommended threads easily as I have been working on it and messing around with threads!
So recent work of mine, I changed colours a lot, but it doesn't mean that I don't like the recommended threads, just couldn't find them, lol
Anyways, so I changed colours for this pattern, too.
"Chrysanthemums" in #746 wasn't show up well, shame...
I didn't know "Chrysanthemums (菊）" and checked dictionary, and then the dictionary said it's used for funeral as well... so I asked Su if this pattern would be for dead person???
But Su told me, in England it's also the symbol of mum or mother's day!
In Japan also "Chrysanthemums" is used for funeral, so when Su told me about that I felt OK! go and start stitching! :D
Thank you, Su!
I framed this with beautiful mat, and presented to my "Surrogate Mum" in England.
I have been stitching the same design for my mum, too, as she loved this as well!
I heard that my "Surrogate Mum" received it safely, so I will share some photos of framed piece tomorrow!
Back to stitching, until tomorrow I would like to finish my mum's one!
Here is another diary "Tomato Diary" lol
Now we have been growing strawberries and tomatoes in the planter.
This is so nice experience for little kid to see and know how they grow up!
Here is a tomato's flower.
I didn't know that tomato's flower is yellow like this until now.
My mum is always thinking about my son Tass, thinking how she makes him happy, smile and make him excited!
I really appreciate for her, she doesn't do anything to me, she says "just relax now", but she is old so seems quite tough to nursing him all day.
Thank you, Mum!
P.S. To Bonnie who has left a comment on my last post, could you please tell me your e-mail address? Thanks.
Take care + Have a lovely weekend!
