An heirloom made by my mother
Family Stitches

Her family history preserved with linen
Each little square is placed with a likeness
With threads of her life in so many colours
Hand stitched by mother, her work is flawless

A double seam to keep it together
Embroidered by lace with her loving touch
Cross stitched edges to keep all her kisses
With blended memories of laughter and such

Bound with batting to keep us warm
Feeling so safe, as if in her arms
A family heirloom that holds her treasures
With all of her love, sweetness and charms
