Mom's Freedom Eagle



This Eagle I stitched as a tribute to Mom after she passed away 1 year ago....... Dec. 8, 2007.

Mom always liked eagles and to me it represented 2 things, Freedom and Strength.
Freedom for mom from the 17 years she suffered from Alzheimers.
Strength for me to go on with life the way she would want me to.

The Eagle only took me a little over 2 months to do , stitching just in the evenings. I know the colors aren't quite true to an eagles color, but mom and I both had/have a quirky side to us and liked to do our own thing LOL!

I have the eagle framed and where I can see it every day.

God Bless,
Brenda

Is that hand-stitched, Brenda? It's just beautiful. I love items that remind of those we love.

Blessings & joy,

Lea, yes it is hand-stitched! I did all of the outline stitching first and then filled it in with all satin stitching. It was a project of love for mom.

I'm glad you liked it. thank you

Blessings,
