    MY friend died earlier this year of cancer and I have met his dear mom ( who lives in Pa) several times and she is a sweetheart .. it was my pleasure to do this for her . As I went along I found lady's bugs and butterflies and bunnies in my stash as well;). I know it will bring a big smile to her face. Can't wait to thread paint and the fun stuff now. Ps I used SOFT FUSE this time and I highly recommend it and loved it !! super easy to use.

    The entire project took less than a couple of hours it went directly from my head to the fabric.. and using soft fuse made it really easy to do.

    I am hoping the side panels of blue will look like curtains she is looking out onto the yard.. and will likely border it all with white windowsills next.

    You are one nice lady to make your friend's mother this.
    She will really enjoy this for sure. :thumbup: :thumbup:
    My MIL was in NH. one suggestion; put a name on it, so no one will take it. My MIL things were stollen when she pasted away!!!! it was awful!! Don't ever want that to happen to anyone, again.

    MY friend wife's name is BEA thus the little Bea on the bottom left in the flowers. The butterfly is for my friend ( the recipients son) who died...( sign of rebirth.

    It's a great idea. When my Mom was in a care home (for 7 years) we bought & hung a bird feeder outside her bedroom window thinking it would be wonderful....NOT.... every time a bird flew in..the motion upset her...etc.... she was living with the results of a stroke.... I made a cute wall hanging for above her bed, and each season hung things throughout out the home.
