WILLOW'S CROSS STITCH

Monday, December 02, 2013

IT SEEMS HARD TO BELIEVE BUT MY LABOUR OF LOVE FOR MY YOUNGEST GRAND DAUGHTER IS FINALLY FINISHED AFTER 2 YEARS.

I HAD BEEN GIVEN THIS KIT NEARLY 10 YEARS BY A FRIEND HOWEVER MY HANDS WERE SO BAD I COULDN'T DO IT. I WOULD DRAG IT OUT AND DREAM OF THE DAY THAT I COULD ACTUALLY GET STARTED ON IT. IN THE MEAN TIME I WORKED ON ONE ON MUCH LARGER AIDA CLOTH. WILLOWS IS ON AN UNEVEN LINEN AND EITHER 32 OR 36 STITCHES TO THE INCH. WILLOW WAS BORN IN 2008 AND IN 2011 I WAS PLACED ON A HUGE DOSE OF PREDNISONE AND WITH IN 24 HOURS I COULD USE MY HANDS. I HAD THE CROSS STITCH OUT AND WILLOW SAW IT. HER FAVORITE COLOUR IS GREEN AND SHE BECAME SO EXCITED I DECIDED THEN AND THERE I WAS GOING TO GET STARTED AND DO IT FOR HER.


SHE HAS FOLLOWED THE PROCESS WITH GREAT DILIGENCE AND IF SHE CAME OVER AND I WASN'T WORKING ON IT SHE WOULD SAY " OMA DON'T YOU THINK YOU SHOULD BE STITCHING IF YOU WANT TO GET THIS DONE?" SHE WAS ALWAYS SO VERY POSITIVE ABOUT WHAT A GREAT JOB I WAS DOING AND HOW BEAUTIFUL THE DOLL LOOKED.

RECENTLY MY SYMPTOMS HAVE BEEN WORSE AND MY EYES HAVE BEEN AFFECTED AGAIN SO TRYING TO SEE THE FINE FABRIC HAS BEEN A REAL CHALLENGE BUT WILLOW HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE ENCOURAGING AND NEVER SEEING THE MISTAKES ONLY HER " BEAUTIFUL DOLL" . SHE RECENTLY TOLD HER MOM I AM THE BEST BECAUSE I AM STITCHING HER THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DOLL IN THE WORLD



WILLOW MY LOVE THIS IS FOR YOU. THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT

LOVE OMA
