Proud Daughter

I would like to share a photo of my Mother that was taken last fall at a get together of stitchers in our area.
My mother has been cross stitching for 30 years and has never pushed me to stitch. I had many other hobbies and shared time with her doing those other things. eg sewing ,knitting, singing ,reading ect. ect.. As a matter of fact she taught my best friend Kathy to stitch 15 years ago. ...Still not interested!
They had fun together and I was the recipient of many lovely pieces.
Three years ago I joined them [guess I was ready] and never looked back. I fell into the stitching cult with both hands..Yes I love it!!!
THANKS MOM for your stitching genes.
The picture she is holding she stitched from a Stoney Creek collection book131 Instrument of Love.
I must add that my Mother[Adriana] will be 91 in August. Yes 91!!!!!

What a lovely picture of Adriana. Adriana is one of the loveliest people you could ever meet. She is indeed responsible for teaching me to stitch. She is the first of the great enablers. I love her dearly.

Wow good genes must run in your family. Your mom does not look 91. I really like the witch you are stitching.

Adriana is an inspiration to us all and was one of the original Thursday stitchers before we even became Thursday stitchers!
