Stitching with Mom & Pennies from Heaven ~ Volume 23

For the past several years, Mom and I have gotten together on Memorial Day weekend to create a pincushion together. This year it was:
“Slice ‘o Summer”
By Maggie Bonanomi
Originally from the Country Sampler Maggie Club
Now published in Maggie’s Book “Pure & Simple”

I so look forward to our stitching projects together...

I also have to share two of Mom’s fabulous finishes

“Wool Sampler”
By Maggie Bonanomi

Stitched on an old feedsack

You can still see faint signs of the feedsack - love that!

And I love how Mom put her labels in the center of each flower on the back.

And this amazing masterpiece:

“Fish Tales”
By Jan Mott for Crane Designs

This piece is so amazingly realistic!

The details, colors and shading really make a statement!

I can’t stop admiring it,

Truly a work of art!

And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
~Ephesians 3: 17-19

Blessings, Patti
