A conversation between my sister and diem3 had me remember the photos I snapped of my mother’s cross-stitch projects.
The last cross-stitch post had mostly Christmas related projects . . . . not this time . . .
Here, let me help . . .
Meet the artist
That’s my mother, posing with one of the pieces showcased in Part 1<<link, of this series.
I don’t often speak of my family other than in passing but know I get my sense of humor from my mother, as well as a desire for knowledge, my enjoyment of reading, music, fiction, and movies.
Our tastes have diverged over the years, but she laid the foundation for what I appreciate in life. Her name is Nives (Italian form of NIEVES, meaning “snow” in Spanish).
As for all my bad traits, those I developed on my own.
Readers might remember this piece from the previous post . . .
I have a photo of the piece in a frame, but I can’t find it. I mean, I know I snapped the photo, but somehow, it’s hiding from me. I have a photo I got from my sister that I can share, and if I ever come across my version of it, I’ll add it here.
The piece looks very nice in the frame.
And here’s my mother working on it . . .
If my eyes are not playing tricks on me, I’ll take credit for mounting that craft stand onto a stable platform.
Here is the pattern for the piece with the threads used for the project . . . Note: clicking on the photo will open a 4MB original for them who want to see details of the threads.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
