A birthday present for my mother-in-law, more than a month late.
It was a lovely simple embroidery project inspired by a “pin” (which I can no longer find but looked a lot like this). I traced my kids hands as well as they allowed with a fabric marking pen, back-stitched each with a different color floss, and created a cover for a pre-made pillow form.
It took just a weekend to whip up and I was looking forward to giving it to her tomorrow. Sadly, my in-laws had to cancel their plans. So, I am holding it hostage until they come visit us.
Do you hear that, Mama? You don’t get it until we get a visit!!! 🙂
See you soon.
Fresh, energetic, and filled with love! Great piece.
What a good idea!!
Oh, I absolutely love this, Jody!

I just pinned it 🙂 So lovely and unique and amazing and inspiring and I want to make one right now! Love it. Fabulous in every way. Just like you!
This is amazing!! Such a great idea and looks fantastic.
Amei esta proposta. A vontade que tenho é de fazer 1 por ano com as mãozinhas de meus pequenos. Adorei a singeleza do trabalho.
What a great idea! She will be down for a visit soon, I bet!
And now I know what I’m making for Christmas presents! It’s darling!
