    I have a plant just about that color.......it has taken a long time, it seem to grow very slow. Your mom sure looks happy in that picture. You must miss her being so far away :D

    It's beautiful, as is your mother. What a smile! :D
    How did you stabilize the edges?

    Minda - the whole of the top was stabilized with a product that is self adhesive and repositional called filmoplast. I did a normal binding on the edges. The 3D flowers were also made with filmopast, I stuck it down on fabric then used bondaweb and ironed it to the back of the flower fabric, then drew the flower and satin stitched right around the edge, then cut it out. :D
