A just-because gift for my mom for tomorrow. She is 86, and a three-year cancer survivor. I've learned not to take any day for granted. Design from Tattered Stitches. My picky machine loves her designs. This hasn't been pressed yet, but I was too excited to wait

Thank you. She will say thank you and I'll say that she's welcome and that will be the end of that conversation. But it will hang in her kitchen and she will show all who visit. That's just her way.

A beautiful gift for a beautiful mom. I love the saying "a just because gift". That is truly a gift of love.

My mom is fantastic. My dad has been disabled for most of my life, and my mom has been his caretaker the whole time. She put her own interests and needs on the back burner and I've never heard her be bitter about it. Now that my own husband is disabled, her courage and bravery take on a whole new meaning. I know my days with her are fewer all the time, so I try to make the best of them.

Thank you. I didn't have the thread chart in front of me so I used my machine's suggestions and it came out darker and redder than the picture of the design on the website. I like both styles

thank you. My mom is of the generation that is not demonstrative, and passed that on to me to an extent, so it is hard for both of us to initiate a hug or anything. But we are making progress.

Thank you. My mom loves watching her birds. She's had a bird feeder ever since I can remember.
