Mother's Day sewing

I saw this on Craftzine.com back in December and decided I wanted to make something similar for my mom and mother-in-law for Mother's Day. My husband's folks have just 4 grandkids so I talked to my SIL about a collaboration and here's what we did:

I stitched the hands (my three kiddos plus little cousin Ryan) and Amy found a cute poem and then matted and framed it, and shipped it to Utah in time for Mother's Day.

My parents have 13 going on 14 grandkids so I opted to just stitch up my own babies' hands for Mom. And make it into a quilt. I was LATE getting it done and sent, but that's just how it goes sometimes.

This is the cutest idea, Vicki!!! I totally want to make one... but maybe in a few weeks, when I have 6 hands to sew and am settling into a new baby routine.
