Another year has gone by. Mother’s Day is around the corner. Those of us fortunate enough to have a special mom, mother-in-law, wife, or grandmother in our lives need to come up with gift ideas. I am confident the special woman in your life owns enough mugs and perfume. I imagine she will not appreciate extra calories from exotic Belgium chocolate. I am sure she will be offended if you buy her oven mitts or a new apron. If you still want to be on speaking terms, do not buy a new food processor or iron. Take if from me. I am a daughter, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter, but I am also a mom a few times over. What I would like most is a new needlepoint canvas designed in 2015. Okay, 2014 is also fine. But I don’t want anything old and outdated. I prefer modern, unique, classy, and original. I adore bold colors yet something strikingly feminine. I seek uncomplicated, stress-free solace in my needlepoint choices. I would even consider something personal like a customized design.
