So this is the sampler I made for my Mum for Christmas. Thankfully, I had an extra few weeks before seeing her.
So it started out as a review of my year (one thing of each month), and then I found this cute owl on etsy by Michelle Palmer, and bought this cute stitching template of a turtle by Charlotte Lyons (funds raised to help Gulf wildlife), and acute mini fabric collage by Pam Garrison.
I got things back on the rails, though, and then filled the gaps with flowers and stars....
My "suzi blu" La Sirena mermaid. (I took this before I was finished, so her mouth isn't there.)
A lace scrap to symbolize my mori girl interest:

V is for the Young Victoria project from the start of last year.
