Handmade Mother’s Day Gifts

For Mother’s Day, each of my daughters gave me something homemade and each had my favorite scottie motif.  My youngest daughter crocheted an afghan, using a cross-stitch pattern which she adapted.

It’s perfect with the black and red against a white background.  This is a large afghan – 54×68 inches.

My oldest daughter made up a wall hanging that included a page from an old cloth book, a miniature dress and a tin scottie plate.

There is a panel of a scottie purse stitched on even weave linen in the tiniest stitches imaginable.

A great Mother’s Day made even better by scotties!

  1. Those are both lovely! There is nothing better than a gift from the heart and hands! My oldest boy gave me a candle and a short little note. I love the candle but the note means the world to me!
