Heart And Sew
To get to the pillow. Which is what you see in the photograph.. My Mom sewed when we were growing up.
She sewed for us and she sewed for others.. She later opened a shop when I was in school. She loved to sew, knit ,crotchet and anything to do with thread or fabric. Now she can not remember how to sew
Yet she is always dreaming of beautiful fabrics..Wonderful Dresses made in all colors.. Boxes and Rooms filled with fabric.. She has twice got the scissors and cut her sheet in half and then a pair of her pj's...When I ask her why she cut these things..She always says they needed repairing... No more scissors....
I decided to get some felt that we could cut together for fun..So we cut flowers out with no pattern...We did a few and then she says Ouch these scissors are hurting my hand... Just as a child would do after a few minutes.
I decided to take the flowers we cut out and I made this simple pillow out of burlap and then tried to sew the words by hand.. "Me And You" ..I am going to give it to her for a Christmas gift.. A memory we can keep....
Treasure every moment you have with your Mom. If your Mom is already left this world..Make something for in Memory of her... Just for your heart and soul...Or as for me and my Mom.....Heart and Sew.
THIS will be my last post for this year..I just want to say thank you to everyone that follows me and the ones who just stop by..
You all inspire me, and make me smile and sometimes laugh at loud .Then there are times your honesty of pain and sorrow makes me cry..I feel blessed for your friendship.
I hope all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
May God Bless .
