For the past few years, Mom and I have spent a day over Memorial Day weekend making pincushions together. This year we made tomatoes designed by Maggie Bonanomi.
and now in her book "Pure & Simple".
The tomatoes pictured above are Mom's.
And here are mine.
It was a delightful way to spend the day together!
Mother-daughter bonding - doing what we love :)
It's hard to believe that Mom has been in her new home a year.
And during that year I haven't posted any "Pennies from Heaven" creations by Mom!
So, while Mom was sewing buttons on tomatoes, I took pictures of some of her many finishes.
This was Mom's first finish in her new home.
How appropriate! And she has a tag sewn on the back commemorating the occasion.
Aren't her stitches amazing?!
And here is a close up of the center.
I believe that "Home" is a Buttermilk Basin pattern and I think that her "O" is an original.
Isn't this a lovely holiday finish?

I love how Mom added beads to the oranges and the wreath.

I have so many more finishes of Mom's to share, but I will save some for another day...
