For My Mom

As a RR our Thursday stitching group decided to do a RR for my Mother.
We chose the alphabet fairies and each did our initial and added our full name to it. Then we left one space for her to add her name. Top left.
I stitched the center and finished it into a pillow.
She is very proud of this and has it on her bed in her Bedroom..
It was a surprise and we had great fun keeping it a secret until it was her turn to stitch on it.
She is always very willing to stitch on a RR but didn't ask to have one done for herself, so....we took it upon ourselves.
We have a wonderful group, actually have 15
members now.

I've been working on my witch so no Tour des Marques this week. I'm going to get it done soon. I will show you another photo soon.

It is a beautiful pillow, the little fairies are so dainty and delicate. I'm sure she'll be so pleased you all thought enough of her to take the time to make it everytime she sees it.

Love the pillow. I'm sure mom is as thrilled with the stitching as she is that each of you stitched it for her.
