Squares 7 & 8: Mom & Dad

I am truly blessed to have my parents.  They did an outstanding job of raising my brother and myself -- instilling in us independence and confidence, morality and compassion.  They emphasized education and achievement.  They provided a stable home, and provided us with wonderful experiences, like many (many!) family road trips.  We were lucky little people to grow up in such a home, with parents who loved us and had our best interests always in mind.

Now I'm additionally blessed because my parents are a big part of my girls' lives.  My girls get the benefit of having a loving, extended family around them -- and they get a lot of spoiling from Mimi and GrandDad.

Blessings abound!
Happy stitching! :)

  1. Your squares are beautiful! I'm still working on mine...only 2 squares so far. Your knotwork really adds a lot to the nostalgic feel. ;)
