Garden Angel

 Hi friends! 🌼Homespun Collectibles🌼

This is the perfect pattern for my dear Mom. I stitched it for her birthday, which is tomorrow. I stitch my Mom an angel or a cat every year and my Mom is a MASTER GARDENER.🌻🌹🌸🌷🏵️She still gets out there most every day, despite the pain in her body, to tend her garden. I learned the love of gardening from my Mom. 

I received this pattern from my friend Gracie and knew I would stitch it up for my Mom. I used the flatfold tutorial from our friend Vonna. I stitched this with DMC (I changed two of them) two over two on Ice Blue Cashel 28ct linen.

Would you also like to stitch this darling pattern?

 If so, leave a comment telling me so on this post. This giveaway is open to all of my sidebar followers of this blog. I will draw a winner on Friday, May 20th.


I get to meet up with my local stitch group, Cross Stitcherhood, tonight! HOORAY! Always a fun time stitching, chatting and laughing with my friends. I will be stitching on a birthday present for a friend.

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;  1Peter 3:15

It has turned hot here. I hope you are enjoying the weather you have. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thank you for stopping by.

Stitching and praying,

Greetings Vickie: I hope you had better weather then we did today, lots of damage.
Super cute design and finish, Vonna is a master finisher.
Please do not include me in the pattern giveaway, I have way too many designs I may never get to.

This is so darling, Vickie, and I'm sure your mom treasures all that you've stitched her. I know my mom did :) Hope you had a wonderful time with your fellow stitchers--so nice that you can meet up again! Enjoy your weekend ♥

That is the perfect design for your Mum this year. My MIL loves her garden too. Her Birthday is in March so with Mothering Sunday being the same month we make sure we stock her up with plants!
So glad the in-person groups are meeting up again too. It's nice to have stitching company.
