Mother Love

This just may be my last post for a little while. We are going to have to make an unexpected trip. My MIL who has been battling stage 4 cancer for a few months has lost her battle early Sunday morning. We were hoping that we would be able to get there (she is half way across the country from us) before anything happened. But unfortunately that wasn't to be. She is at peace now and not anymore pain. Love you mom and you will be greatly missed.

I saw this saying on Melissa Phillips blog and loved it. Since our daughter just gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, I thought I would make up a little project to give her. I started out with a canvas board I had (8x10). Distressed the edges with some dabber paint. I used three differ ent papers and sewed them together with my sew mini with a zig zag stitch. I just placed some rub on images in a couple of places and randomly added some buttons that I had in my stash.

If you would like to know the saying, here it is:

Mother Love

Lie still, dear birdie,
In cradle rest.
The gentle breeze rocketh thee
Softly to rest.
Thy Father is singing thee
Sweetly to sleep,
While thy mother her little ones
Softly doth keep.
Sleep peacefully, Baby,
The Spring's come to you;
The grass is a carpet
of violet's blue;
The birds are all singing thee
Softly to rest;
But the love of a mother

Is sweetest and best.
Thank you for coming by!
Have a good one,

Oh, Liz...I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope that you are safe on your trip and that you and your family will have a good time remembering all the wonderful things about your MIL.

Your project is beautiful!

Thanks so much for this great gift. When Garrett finally gets his own room I will be excited to hang this on his wall.

Please make sure everyone knows how upset I am that I cannot be there. I miss them all terribly and send my love.
