For my Mum ...

I have been working on this stitchery design by Lynette Anderson. It will be a needlecase for my Mum, & is from Lynette's Weekend Projects range. 
I bought this as a kit for Mum last Mothers' Day & she hasn't had time to make it up. She is having a tough time with her own mother at the moment. My Grandma who has dementia has deteriorated badly in the last little while. She is in hospital presently & Mum is doing her best to care for her, but Grandma has become quite abusive, so Mum is doing it tough. I am not able to be with them, so phone calls from afar & stitching gifts is the limit of my comfort unfortunately.
Among my mother's many good attributes is an enormous capacity for forgiveness - a good thing really, as this Mothers' Day gift will be late - love you Mum!

  4. Love your simple stitches project.

    It must be so hard for your mum to cope with a mum with dementia and for you to live so far away. Take care!

  5. Such a lovely project to cheer your Mum up. So sad to hear about your Grandma. So hard for your Mum in both ways. Losing her Mum before actually losing her Mum xx
