#5 Daughter-In-Love

My son's girlfriend - she's a peach. Giving and loving, she's willing to pick up and move to the other side of the world and work with him.

I've noticed in the past, whenever my son had his arm around a girl, it just sort of hung there, like he was with a buddy, but with her, he actually holds her with his hand. I take this as a sign he really cares. I think she is really good for him. And she's cute and stylish.

This is the least favorite of my squares so far. There is very little contrast between the handle of the purse and the background. And I haven't cared so much for the colors of the last two. Oh well... I hope that when it's finished, it will all fit together in a big, colorful conglomeration.

Also, I notice my camera "sees" better than I do. I stitch at night and apparently I don't see it as well as I think I do!

No matter, on to the next square!

#4 Son-in-law

I really had no say in the matter, but I could not have picked a better son-in-law! A hard worker, good provider, and the best dad I've ever seen. He's also a talented musician - that is supposed to be a drum set. :^)

#3 My Son

Snips and snails and puppy dog tails

I've always been so proud of him - athletic, smart, with a great sense of humor, my son loves to travel and he'll try just about anything. Like me, he's a dog lover.

Because he's always had a fascination with globes and maps, and I think he wants to see all of it in his lifetime, I chose the earth to represent him.

#2 My Daughter

A daughter is a joy bringer.
A heart warmer.
A memory maker.
A daughter is

I stitched those words on a sampler that hung in my daughter's room. I'm so proud of her and the woman she has become. Not only is she a terrific mother, she juggles a full-time job, scouts, church, family and friends. Did I mention she is also talented and fun?

Gee, no wonder I always say my kids are my greatest accomplishment!

I chose a pink rose to represent her.

#1 - Improved

The more I looked at my first square, the less I liked it, so I filled in the background. I think it's an improvement.
