"Sketching on Felt"

I have been running around all day trying to get my house clean and ready because Mum is coming to visit us tomorrow(O: I'm so excited to show her where we live now. I told her to bring her needlepoint because we have more snow coming at the end of the week so we will be spending time together by the fire. This is going to be my next embroidery project, I wanted to sketch it out so I can start to brainstorm all the detailed ways I plan to fill it in stitch by stitch(O:

Flower's for my Mum(O: My poor Mum has been battling cancer for a while now. I cherish every minute we spend together. She's my very best friend!

(you can see in the mirror of this photo)
My Mum will be staying in my daughter's room for the week. Lucky lady get's zebra print bedding and my "Three Girls" painting for a few days. That painting was done in 1999 when I was pregnant with my first daughter Zoe. That painting has literally shaped my style as an artist. Since I did that piece most of my work has been of ladies of faces. I think of it as a turning point in my artistic career.
