TAKE IT FURTHER CHALLENGE, FEBRUARY, FINISHED
I finished my February TIF piece, "I Remember Mommy". I also used the color scheme. This piece measures 8 x 10 and will eventually be framed.
My mother loved roosters and chickens, so I added some in the piece too. For some strange reason, after she died, I feel this compulsion to collect roosters and chickens and make a rooster and chicken quilts.
I thought of a few more things my mother told me:
Your sewing or embroidery should always look as good on the back as it does on the front.
When I was in 7th grade, I wanted to take choir class as one of my electives. My mother told me I could sing anytime, she wanted me to take home economics, which I ended up doing. When I was 15-17 I was making all my own clothing, plus some of my mother's and my sister's.
