Needle work- broderie.

My mother who will be 82 on Saint Valentine's day, is a very patient and quite person. She can stay hours sitting in her arm chair doing needle work . She loves  nature , birds and flowers and today as a Birthday present i decided to show you some of her work ( there will be a second part because it would be too long today. So here is her needle work!
First work, it makes me think of my loved Scotland!
As i don't have spring flowers in the house , i have them on material!
After our cruise, the sun came back today but not for long, tomorow it will rain again! i wish you a nice day.

What a wonderful mother to have the patients to do such intricate needlework.They all look so beautiful, the colours are so clear and bright.Treasures to be kept for generations.

Wishing your mother a very happy birthday on Valentines day next week.

Me encanta poder ver las fotos de tu blog con esa música relajante de fondo..todo un placer!!!

I hope you get your sunshine soon...we are getting very tired of clouds and fog here in Kansas. Unfortunately we have snow coming again on Sunday...looking forward to spring. Love the music with the bag pipes..don't know why but they always make me cry. Enjoy your day!
