As I mentioned in previous posts, my mother loved Christmas.
She made her own wreaths and Christmas tree skirts.
Each one of my sisters and my brother got a tree skirt beaded by mom.
My sister, Emma, just sent me this photo of her small Christmas display.
The tree skirt was hand beaded by my mother.
These are photos of the tree skirt that my mom totally hand beaded for my sister, Adri.
The sheep were my favorite. They were beaded with little pearls.
I gave the tree skirt that mom made me to one of my sons, so I do not have a photo.
Mom had cut felt to make poinsettias and beaded each petal.
She knew how much I love poinsettias.
Another tree skirt she made me had a beaded Rudolph.
Recently, I have gotten interested in adding beads to embellish some quilt squares.
I remember seeing mom meticulously work on her beading.
I do not have her skill or the patience do to what she did.
So, I will just start small.
