Happy Mother's Day (embroidery)

Happy Mother's Day to you.
I thought I'd share the small gifts I made for my step-mama and my girls...
Embroidered tea towels with strawberries and their initials.
I made the gift tag with the graphic above and this tutorial from 
(Julia is such a smart tag maker)

Wishing you a peaceful day, sitting on a lawn chair in the sunshine with a gentle breeze blowing through your hair.  I hope you have an cup of coffee or tea on the side table and a good book or some stitching in your hands.
Listen to the birds sing. 
Stop and smell the roses.

Mother Teresa said something I've been thinking a lot about lately.

"We cannot do great things, but we can do small things with great love."
~ Mother Teresa

Happy Mother's Day and thanks for the small things you do with great love.


  1. Lovely gifts for sure! Happy Mother's day to you!

  2. It looks so nice, I hope you had a nice day.

  3. I am inspired by your tea towels. Maybe I will decorate towels instead of agonizing over the knitting instructions. :-)
    Happy Mother's Day!

  4. I dug and planted, listening to and watching the birds dive about! We moved the bird feeder for the Wendy House and the birds are coming in close!
    Your embroidery is BEAUTIFUL!

  5. Very very pretty!! You're a talented lady!

  6. Beautiful embroidery! And I love the Mother Theresa quote! That's a good thing to strive for since none of us is perfect. *sigh* Happy Mother's Day yesterday! (I had to work, so I'm having my day today. Iced tea on the deck and doing art and blogging to my heart's content!)

  7. Those are so pretty! You make the best gifts. Happy Mother's Day to you, too.

  8. G'day Gumbo Lily. Your tea towels are just gorgeous. Well done. Take care. Liz...

  9. Adorable J! I love them and such beautiful work you do. I wish we were related ;).
    Happy week to you!

  10. Cute gift tag!

  11. Jody, your tags and dish towels turned out soo great! I am sure all of the recipients just loved them! I love the little picture on your tags, too:). Hope you had a very blessed day:).
