Block 12 2012 CQJP Finished

December 2012 Block finished.
This block is dedicated to my dearest mother who passed away on 1 December 2012.

This small lace bookmark was made by my mother.

 This lace trim was also made by my mum (I added the beads)

Mum also made this crochet piece. It was an experimental test for the wings of an angel.

 The following piece of lace was made by mum too. It was unfinished.

These three stars represent my sister, my brother, and myself.
My brother is the silver star as he is already in heaven and shining as bright as a star. 

The centre sparkly piece was in my mums jewellery box.
I surrounded it with pearls as mum loved her pearl necklaces. She had rather a lot of pearl necklaces.
The four hearts are for her four children.

And this is mums butterfly brooch. It is taking the place of my usually stitched butterfly as the centre piece for this block.

Happy Stitching


  1. this is very beautiful work...I love the mix of surfaces. Thank you so much for the lovely comment on my blog. I am so sorry it took me so long to thank you....Karen

    1. Thank you Karen. So glad you popped over here for a visit.

  2. Such a lovely tribute to your Mom - I love all the symbolism you have included. I also am in awe of your bullion flowers!

    1. Many thanks for the nice comment. I keep thinking that those bullion flowers look more like cabbages though, lol. Maybe I shouldn't have used green thread, haha. Serves me right.
