A Stitch In Time...

 These sweet pictures are of my wonderful Mom and Dad. They hang in their hallway in their house.  So precious.  The last time I was there I took a lot of pictures of her "stitching".  When I think back to my childhood and evenings at home I see her sitting and cross stitching.  I never got the hang of it or was too impatient to work at it, but she loved it.  Here are some of the ones that I love that hang on her walls.

 CROSS STITCH

I’m completely addicted, to this I confess,
The ironing needs doing
and the house is a mess
The windows need cleaning
but what do I care
as I sit here and stitch
in my cosy armchair?

In a world of my own
I could cross stitch all day,
and that’s what I’d do
if I had my own way.
But I’ve got to get cracking
I’ve a dinner to cook
(for a husband who sits there
just reading a book).

There are pictures I’ve done,
all over the walls.
A few minutes to spare
and my cross stitching calls.
An obsession some say
and maybe they’re right
‘cos I could easily sit here
cross stitching all night!

 I especially love this one. It has been in her kitchen for as long as I can remember. Such a true statement.

 The. Best.Words.
Blessings! Amy

I love your Mother! Even though I don't know her, these sweet cross-stitch messages say so much about her.
