Pennies from Heaven ~ Volume 18

"Wooly Thistles Table Rug"

Mom never ceases to amaze me by all that she accomplishes!
We took this class with Rebekah together in June and mine has not been touched since.
This certainly inspires me to pick it back up!

Her stitches are impeccable!

and Rebekah's design and wool are so lovely!

"Redware Crow"

Don't you just love all those tongues!
Perfect yet again!

"O Tannenbaum"
by Ginger Sanchez
kitted by Winterberry Cabin

I love how Mom made the tongues different lengths.

Rick rack made a fun trim for a tree.

And the chenille trimmed tree is sweet too!

"Summer in my Garden"
by Maggie Bonanomi

I had hoped to stitch along with Mom on this, but I only got as far as tracing the pattern :)

I love the layered petals on this flower.

And the little round ones are sweet as well.

"Pillows from the Patch"
by Rebekah L. Smith 
kitted by Wheaten Woolens

Mom worked on these while staying by me and my sister during radiation treatments.

Sew sweet!

One is just cuter than the next!

"Woolen Sheep"

Mom designed her own sweet sheep blanket!
A sweet little sheep to keep her company as she stitches...

And believe or not, Mom has had more finishes since I was there in mid-November! 
I better go back soon to take more photos!

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, 
since as members of one body you were called to peace. 
And be thankful.
~Colossians 3:15

Blessings, Patti

It is great to see your Mum's work. I also used to sew during the good days after each treatment cycle, some of those completed pieces are filled with a great many hopes and prayers, making them all the more special in my eyes. Your Mum has shown a remarkable spirit. I hope that she continues to make a speedy recovery back to good health.

I took the thistle runner class, too, and mine has not been out of the bag since then either.
Maybe next year :)
