Description

It's Mother's Day . . . and I'm feeling sorry for myself because it's my first Mother's Day (39th) with no children around :relieved:. I never thought I'd have all my babies living out of state. So, I decided to make something for my mom today!

I love Mollie's projects at Wild Olive and this little one just had to be made. My mom loves the beach but she's not able to hang out and snorkel quite as much as she likes so I thought embroidered flowers and the ocean would be perfect for her. 

I used my favorite Tula Pink Salt Water as well as Lily of the Valley embroidery by Wild Olive.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY EVERYONE! :tulip:
Update: Thank heaven for FaceTime! I was able to see all my children and grandson to make it a much happier day!

Happy Mother's Day Kathie!

2 of my 3 live far away, so I don't see much of them either. But we spoke on the phone and I got lovely cards and gifts. Also got to spend time with the one child and family who are local.

You are blessed to have your mom to sew for and she is lucky to have you. I love the under the sea theme for a snokeling mom.

Really lovely Kathie- and I had two out of three out of state this year so I understand- hope your day was sweet nevertheless- I'm sure your mom loved this- it's really special.

Thank you everyone and I apologize for publicly whining. I have wonderful, funny talented children and I've been spoiled to have them close for so long...oh, and my mom loves her mug rug, especially the octopi!

Kathie Ha ha- if you can't whine here with your stitchin' friends then where can you ?:)))- hope you can see your children soon- I'm counting the days til my son comes home from college, and til my daughter moves back home- yay!!!!

I know how difficult it is not to have your children home with you for any holiday. But, I'm so happy for you that you got to 'see' them on Mother's Day. I'm a huge mug rug fan and have designed some myself and I love yours!!! The fabric and hand embroidery are beautiful. Your mom is going to love it!

Luckily mine are still too young to leave home, but my mum lives 6000 miles away, and this was our first Mother's Day without her mum. Your mug rug is beautiful.

I love this Tula Pink line, a very thoughtful gift. Hope you had a good Mothers Day.
