Tis the Season..start...

No I am not talking about Christmas, I am starting Tis the Season, the  Blackbird design in honor of my Mother. Each day as she sits in her chair she watches all the different birds that are on all the feeders we have outside the window. She so loves to see the birds come and go. Mostly, she loves cardinals and when I showed her this design she fell in love with it. So, yesterday I starting stitching in while I was sitting with her and she kept say, "Let me see what you have done now," so today I took it again and she just loves it. I have decided to stitch it when I am with her and we visit and pass the time away.
 I was a little disappointed with the red, poison apple, but I am hoping that when it is finished that is appears more read than it does in person. I am not putting Tis the Season on it, I am replacing the lettering with my Mothers' name and birth year. I now she will be pleased.
  Mom was having a good day today...we are getting our miracle daily, she remains pain free and alert! Thank you Jesus!

What a wonderful thing to do with your Mother to pass the time and especially being she LOVES the Cardinal and also your wonderful talent. These will be such special memories in years to come.
I like that you will personalize it just for her.

What a lovely idea to stitch your Mum's name and birth date on this. This is one of my favourite pieces from the booklet so I'm going to enjoy watching this grow.
