No language can express the power, and beauty, and heroism, and majesty of a mother's love. It shrinks not where man cowers, and grows stronger where man faints, and over wastes of worldly fortunes sends the radiance of its quenchless fidelity like a star.
~Edwin Hubbell Chapin
This week, six years ago my Mum lost her fight with breast cancer, and I just know that somewhere in heaven my mummy is sewing angel clothes. I can't say that it gets any easier, I still miss her very much, I miss her wisdom and her love. When I first saw this Sewing embellishment kit from Enmarc I just knew I was going to do a mixed media canvas honouring my Mum's amazing sewing skills.
old sewing pattern
Assorted Lace & ribbon
7 Gypsies tape
I altered the dress form by placing it on the angel and trimming off all the bits that poked out.
I covered the dress form with pattern paper and gathered the lace on ribbon. Using Diamond Glaze I glued the pearls down. I inked all the embellishments
If you still have your Mum. Love her, Bless her, Thank her and appreciate her.
She gave you Life
til next time
have a scrapalicious week
