All about Mom

This is about my Mom Adriana.

Some of you have met her or have seen some photo's of her on my Blog.
She is an inspiration and I'm so blessed to have her so close to me . I see her often and we stitch together at least twice a week.
The best part she is 92. (93 in Aug). She had eye surgery in Dec. and Jan. and now once again can see very very well. She had Cataracts removed. She stitched right up to the day of the surgery and very soon after. We got her a pair of cheaters. to tie her over.

This is what she has stitched since then. She received this kit from my SIL and couldn't wait to start. I think it was late Jan.

This is.... A Gold Collection Dementions Kit. " Holiday Village" by Nicky Boehme,
the fabric is 16ct Aida , the finished piece is 12" X 16"

She finished it today.

Isn't it just the most beautiful piece?
I'll be taking it in next week to have it framed for her.
She'll help pick out the frame I'm sure.

I needed to share this with you because I love her .

Stitch with happy fingers.

Hi Beatrice,

I am in awe of your Mom!!!! She is
truly amazing and so darn lucky to
be able to stitch such beautiful
projects, and so quickly too. I'm
glad the cataract surgeries went
so well for her. They certainly
haven't slowed her down any have
they?? Holiday Village is going
to look amazing when it's all

Did you walk this evening Beatrice?
It was spitting rain when I left
the house, but I had my spring
jacket on so wasn't concerned.
Just pulled up the hood and kept
going. But it soon started to
rain harder. By the time that
I finished my half hour walk I
was pretty wet all over. Ah well.
Fortunately I love to walk in the
rain. But I kept hearing Gene
Kelly's voice in my head ....
Singing in the Rain....

I think your mom is an inspiration for all of us who thinks that they will have to give up on stitching as they get older because of the sight ;-) She always stitch beautiful pieces ! Please, tell her she's the greatest !!!
