Stitched by Tiny Apartment Crafts - read her pattern review
One of my favorite things to do with my mom is pore over our family tree. She has a bad memory - mine's even worse, so every time we comb through our collective memory we marvel over all the weird names, funny memories and bittersweet happiness of having had such a very big family with such strange, wonderful, and adventurous lives.
That's why I was so excited to see this new family tree pattern by Liz Stiglets:

I thought it would be a great way to commemorate Mother's Day - well, hey I know you probably can't stitch it overnight, but just sitting down with your parents and mapping out the names of all your loved ones would be a great way to spend part of your day. It could also be a sweet wedding gift or a gift for a brand new mom. Or maybe even a gift for yourself, as you add the names of everyone who is special in your life...
The pattern is available in Liz's shop, Cozy Blue. Thanks, Liz, for sharing this with us! :) And if any of you have stitched this up, please be sure to share a link with us!
