In honor of Mother's Day


Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there!

The inspiration for this design was my own mother, who raised shopping to an art.  She once spent three hours cruising a mall, finally emerging with a single pair of stockings.  The only person who could match her shop-for-shop was my youngest son, who inherited the shopping gene that had eluded me.

This piece was stitched in DMC cotton floss, Kreinik metallics and DMC Medici wool in French knots for the hair.
