With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend I’ve got “mother” themed things on the brain.
This is Mother’s Arms from Mirabilia Designs. I will throw a confession in here, I was actually surprised to see that this was a Mirabilia leaflet, it seems different than their usual releases – but, in a good way.
When I think of Mirabilia I usually think of fancy ladies sitting on invisible stools or of colorful mermaids swimming through imaginary waters. I love the colors and the symbols of motherhood throughout this particular piece.
Every mother understands the desire to surround her child with love. Here that love is represented in the most exquisite of details: the infant’s patchwork quilt of hearts, the faithful stuffed bunny, the white doves of peace, and the mother-of-pearl charms that surround the precious pair with health and happiness.
The stitch count on Mother’s Arms is 155w x 189h, so it’s a very nice sized piece. The pictured model was stitched over 2 threads on 32 count Ivory Linen using Mill Hill Beads and Kreinik Metallic Threads.
Happy Stitching (and happy Mother’s Day, early!)
