Me Mudder's Hands

My mom came for a visit this past weekend and we spent lots of time crafting during baby naps.  She did lots of mending for me, too, taking great pride in patching up my old blanket that she made for me 30+ years ago.  Some of the old patchwork squares have been rotting, so at each visit she goes through my scrap pile and adds new squares.  
She also took some time to do her own embroidery:
Thanks for visiting, Mom!!


  1. Not to mention replacing buttons because you don't like hand stitching. A fun time was had by all.

    I just noticed......Mending with my right hand and embroidering with my left. How strange is that.

  3. I love this post the most!! Glad you got some time to craft together. Next time can I come too?

  4. P.S. Beautiful embroidery Ms. Merrie.
