My MIL started this piece...awhile ago. Last spring they sold their house, moved all they could into our basement and began building their dream home. While her "stash" was being moved into the basement, this project jumped out of her stitching and right into my stitching! So I've been working away on it for almost a year. I washed, ironed and stretched it for her, and gave it to her this past weekend with a card that it was both her "new home" present and her "retirement" present all in one. She was shocked and at first was talking about how she had a similiar one in her stitching but she hadn't seen it since moving into the new house. DH let her in on our little secret.
I hope you enjoy it in your new home Mom!
