Birthday



Today is a special day. I probably shouldn't be writing this. A family member may read it and have something to say about it. But, I don't care. She is my mom. She means the world to me.

Today is her birthday. We had cake yesterday. Tonight we had special pastries for our celebration. She turns further into her 70s today. She is slowing down too.

I have a picture here of the Easter Egg that I am working on for my aunt. She is coming to town in about 10 days or so. I would like to get it done soon. Her birthday is on the 20th so I would really like to get it done as a special gift to her. It is a tea towel. It is embroidery. I have been doing mostly cross stitch projects lately. But, this time I wanted to do embroidery on a tea towel.

I found the pattern online. I didn't know what to do. So I googled images of easter eggs. That one came up and it looked best. I got to choose the colors! I am adding pink and yellow still. Will show you more later.

Happy stitching to you all! And for the rest of you, enjoy a cup of tea with me today!

Hi Trish!
You're stitching is looking great! I can't wait to see it finished up.. I'm sure your aunt will love it!
I hope your mom had a wonderful birthday :)

And your blog looks great by the way! I noticed you changed it from a black layout to this pretty springy green!

Hugs & Happy Stitching
