Cross stitch picture from my mother

We have something really precious up on our wall, thought i will share it with you. My mother spent many hours in the past two months making this elaborate cross stitch picture for us. I adore her persistence when it comes to doing crafts. She could come back to the same project every evening for many weeks and enjoy doing it till the last knot, a quality I seriously lacks. Ammachi, thank you, you are the best !

The apple does not fall far from the tree. Exquisitely done. In our home this particular Mother is the 'Sundari Maathavu'. It must be wonderful to have this stitched by your own Mom for you.

My mother says thank you.

Green heart
Thank you for your nice words. I am sorry that you are not able to see the pics, i am not really sure what the problem is. Would you like to visit my public flickr album, where i have all the photos ?

Swapna,
I was also surprised that she was able to finish it in two months, especially so since she was taking care of my daughter during the day. She worked on it mostly in late nights. I am glad that you liked it. Thank you.

Tinu,
Welcome to this blog, i am glad that you are here. Thank you very much for your kind words.

Lan,
Thank you for the compliment, and thanks a ton for telling me the name, we were kind of asking around to see if there is a specific name for the picture.

Rushina,
You are a sweetheart, thank you very much. I will be showing off my award very soon.

Wow! Wonderful! Looks very good. I don't know anything about stitching but my mom is quite interested in stitching,I could get her something like this. So you get a kit(with pictures) for doing this?

Archana, it's amazing. So yours is a talented family, huh?

My mom loves to stitch too but I lack that ability. Is this available as a kit with instructions? I would like to get something like this for her, so please let me know.

Thanks
Rg.
