Happy Mother's Day, Mom!

Here are a couple of pictures of my mom and her Mother's Day gift!  (The photos are a little fuzzy but you get the idea.)

Each flower was made using the "Sunflower" pattern here at Lakeview Cottage Kids.  The leaf pattern is from Windrose Fiber Studio.

I attached each photo to each flower by sewing one stitch through the flower, picture and button!  (The pictures are of each member of our family....children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and pets!)

Then I chained 25 ch to start, *sl st through a leaf stem, chain 10 ch, sl through a flower petal, chain 10 ch*.  End with a leaf and chain 25 ch.  Fasten off.  I was going to make one long garland, but it got way too long, so I made five separate ones and attached them to the door using Command Strip Hooks!

Now my Mom can easily see everyone in the family and staff, visitors and other residents get to see her family, too!
