A Mother's Love

While my mother was coping with dad's illness and his subsequent passing, she embroidered dozens of fabric postcards.  Quite a few were sent as thank-yous to the many people who helped my parents during the course of dad's illness.

As Christmas came around, she was still stitching.  This is the one that she hand delivered to me mid December. I think that it is absolutely gorgeous and will be keeping it out on display for quite a while yet.


I will be linking up with Postcard friendship Friday at The Best Hearts are Crunchy


  1. Oh, my! How beautiful! Your Mother is very talented. Such special treasures. Happy PFF!

  2. beautiful. ((hugs)) I didn't realize you'd lost your Dad, too. This was deeply touching to my heart. Thank you for sharing your Mom's lovely work and heart of love. ((hugs))

    Happy PFF, my dear.

  3. This is so beautiful. I have never seen an embroidered fabric card before.

  4. Hi Heather. That is a beautiful, beautiful piece of work! I have only seen an embroidered stamp (from the Singapore Post) but not a postcard.

    I am sorry to hear about your dad. My prayers to you and your family.
