Stitches Made Out of Love

10 November 2009

I opened the gate for the guy who delivered these. It was overwhelming to see a work of art straight from the heart. My mother is a stay at home like me. Since the hobby of cross stitching began, I knew that this will be my mom's ultimate past time. She gave me and my husband a big frame containing one of her firsts, as wedding gift.
With all the available time she has, she had her and my dad's picture scanned and made into cross stitch patterns. This picture of my mom was taken before she enrolled in Abs-Cbn for an acting workshop. Hair and Make-up by Bhoy Navarette. This picture brought her to experience the world of acting. She did some commercials too.
This picture of my Dad is my mom's favorite. It reminded her of my Dad when he was still courting her. The sweet, candid smile... It is indeed one of my Dads perfect smiles.

Next in her pattern list is the picture of the whole family. She is also planning to make individual cross stitch of us (her children), for their new house. I can't wait for that!

Ang galing naman :) Tsaka ang tiyaga ha :)

You are blessed to have parents like them :) Bakit ikaw nga pala di ka sumubok pasukin ang larangan ng showbiz? For sure, di ka mahihirapan. Maganda ka kasi :)

Wow super ganda naman nito sis.. Yep, where can you make a pattern for this? I love cross stitching din kasi eh..

Enchie said...

@ Onlinemommy thanks for the compliment ha...Kapalan ko na mukha ko, I'm suppose to audition for Ang TV pero pimples got me first :D

@Chubskulit thanks also...My mom had it made with DMC the thread brand for cross stitch. I think may promo ata.

I adore your mom for the effort she gave just to finish this wonderful art.I can feel all the love she has towards your Dad while she's doing this.No wonder why you adore your parents that much.I believe magiging katulad ka rin ni Mommy mo.Thanks for sharing this to us Mommy Enchie.

Heather said...

hey that is cool how did she get the picture made into a pattern? I would love to do one of those!

pinayrichmom said...

wow, this is so great! galing naman ng mom mo. :)

Enchie said...

@ Mommy Seiko thank you so much for the inspiring words...

@ Heather hello! I don't really know how she had it made. I think she went to a cross stitch shop and it just so happen that they're converting pictures to patterns.

@ Pinayrichmom thanks again ha!
