It was given to my first child by his Godmother, Teri. The needlework in this piece still amazes me to this day! Fiber Artists are a dedicated, patient, group. I can only dream of such craftsmanship. I kept this and it eventually hung in all my children's nurseries. Can you imagine the feeling it evokes.
The next generation is about to have this passed along. I don't like to think of how many years have passed since I first saw this and the bemusement that comes with trying to wrap my head around where the years went and the memories of those years. I can only say it was a flash!
I hope this is well loved for years and generations to come.

I am glad the DPW challenge this week is the 10 minute challenge. This was the first challenge I did, but never submitted. I did apples and oranges before, they were easy and fun. For this one I did my chicken timer. I like him, don't like the cooking thing, but I like my timer friend. Painting this chicken in 10 minutes for each view, not as easy as apples and oranges.
A fun paint!

This challenge was difficult creatively. Paint something of motherhood, it could be a favorite item of your Mother, her favorite flower, perfume, dessert, etc. Very difficult, when your Mom is gone.
I picked this after an entire week of thought...
