My daughter (Yoshimara-Muse as she shows up on blogger) commented on my last post that her favorite piece of mine is the teddy bear on the china cabinet that I stitched for my biological mother. So I figured I would pop a pic up, since I still have no new progress.
This was my first ever cross stitch. Aurie (my birth-mother) had chosen it and I agreed to stitch it for her. I finished is a couple months before she passed away but was unable to go visit her due to a high risk pregnancy (my son in 1996) that wouldn't let me travel. I had to restart this piece 2 oir 3 times because I kept messing up the bear and there were just too many stitches to pull it all out. It was easier to just get new fabric and start over. On the third try I did the bear first and when I got it right I did the rest. This pic was taken with a polariod instant camera and then scanned in, so it is a horrible picture. The piece was buried with my mother, layed accross her chest with her hands folded atop it. I am sure she saw it and loved it.
