Today, I'm remembering my Grandma.
You see, I am the first grandchild and we share a birthday.
Grandma holding me right after I was born.
Growing up, Grandma and Grandpa lived just across town
and we got to spend alot of time together.
From her soft spoken, gentle nature to her strong Christian faith,
Grandma was the living example of the values she taught all of her grandchildren. So much of her made me who I am today.
My mom, Grandma, my oldest daughter and me. October 1991.
When I saw the post and free design by
Maja of The Snowflower Diaries,
I knew that I wanted to stitch it in memory of my Grandma.
I Will Be There
The Snowflower Diaries
28 Count Light Pink Unknown Fabric over 1
I changed the thread colors to
Classic Colorworks Collard Greens for the vine,
Classic Colorworks Cocoa Bean for the words
and DMC 3726 for the roses.
I had some scraps of the Rambling Rose fabric and made a pincushion for my sewing room.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA!
