I’ve been meaning to stitch this for my Mum for quite a number of years now, and other projects keep getting pushed in front of it. I had planned on including it in my 2013 stitching challenge, but then all of a sudden was in-between projects and started feeling a sudden urge to get it finished so Mum could enjoy it sooner. I managed to put the final stitches into it this morning, and it just needs to be framed now so I can give it to her when she comes to visit in 2 weeks’ time. I’ve been blessed with 3 visits from Mum now this year – first to head to France and the UK, then to help me at home with cleaning out the apartment, and now to attend a Baroque concert we’ve had tickets booked for since the beginning of the year – I’m feeling very spoilt with so many visits, and loving every single minute of every one!

I’m working some mental hours at work yet again, but trying to get a couple of days off during Mum’s visit … not sure if it’ll pan out, but we’ll see … either way we’ll have 2 weekends together, if nothing else 🙂
