My mother died last week. It was not unexpected nor was it unwelcome. Just weeks shy of 89 years, my mother's body and mind were both worn out. I had the profound honor of holding her hand as she passed, and I rejoice in knowing that she is in the hands of the Light.

My Mother
Today, to honor her memory, I give you, "Peavine"

It's a simple chain design with lots of potential. In a single line, it's a delicate accent. Stitched in rows, side-by-side, it becomes positively lush. The possibilities are almost endless!

Enjoy. When you stitch it, I hope you think of your own mother and your unique and special relationship with her. And smile.

Be blessed~


  1. It is tough losing a Mother, I speak to her all day long, even if she is gone for 15 years. It isn't easy.

  2. I lost my mom on March 31,2012. It is on of the hardest things i have endured. She had cancer. I have all her hats that she wore during her battle. I have been trying to come up some way i can incorporate them into a quilt. Love your stitch.

  3. My thoughts are with you both.

  4. Thank you for your pattern - I shall include it in a picture I am stitching in memory of my mother.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time.

  5. I lost my Mum too and I know the feeling. I would love to be able to talk with her again. We were really close. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  6. May you take comfort in knowing she is watching over you. God called my mom home way too soon. But I know she is watching over me, saving me a place in Heaven.
    God bless you.

  7. Thank you all for your kind comments. Your sentiments are a great comfort. I know it will be a long time before this ache in my heart eases up, but that's okay.


Thanks for stopping in. Your comments are welcome.
