Like mother, like daughter.

Like mother like daughter

Last night, me and Sumarrós stitched together. It was wonderful. Since me and my mother have the same respect and passion for needlework and crafts, and I know how much it has meant to me to have someone so close to me as my mother is have this respect for what I love the most, it feels wonderful to be able to share the same joy with my own daughter.
When I got home from work yesterday and she came home from a friends house the first thing she asked me was ‘Mom, can we stitch together tonight?’ And off course I said yes! It was wonderful.
She isn’t willing to share her progress yet since she wants to get a little more stitching done on her project before sharing a picture :o) Spoken like a true needleworker eh?

This picture was taken the same day we celebrated her birthday, after all the guests were gone. She was so excited to start stitching. She first sorted through her yarn and cut it to useable lenghts and then she sat down and started. She told me so many times ‘Mom, I really love stitching, don’t you?’ Adorable!

    Hi Linda, Lena Lou’s daughter Amy is 8 and has started stitching too. She’s got her own blog which she updates on occassion. Don’t know if you know Lena Lou at Homespun Hearts but she does wonderful stitching. Anyways, here’s Amy’s blog for Sumarros to check out. And a belated Happy birthday to her. Cheers Judy
