Mother's Day Gift for Mother-in-Law Counted Cross Stitch Embroidered Poem, Wall Hanging, 1980

This is a lovely and unusual, vintage find that would make a sweet Mother's Day gift for a Mother-in-Law. The piece has been worked beautifully in very small cross stitch, with a floral design in the top right corner and at the bottom. Titled, "To His Mother," this vintage embroidered wall hanging is a poem from a daughter-in-law to her mother-in-law, thanking her for raising such a good son and husband. It is quite touching and beautiful.

Framed and matted professionally, the exterior wood frame measures 16 1/2" x 13" x 1". The off-white mat measures 1 1/2" with a 1/4" rose mat beneath.

The UV glass causes my photo to show the piece as a bit blurry, but that's the nature of UV glass. This piece will be protected forever, as long as it stays behind this glass.

The poem reads:

To His Mother

Mother-in-law they say, and yet,
Somehow I simply can't forget
'Twas you who watched his baby ways
Who taught him his first hymn or praise;
Who smiled on him with loving pride
When he first toddled by your side.
Mother-in-law but oh, 'twas you
Who taught him to be kind and true,
When he was tired, almost asleep,
'Twas to your arms he used to creep,
And when he bruised his tiny knee,
'Twas you who kissed it tenderly.
Mother-in-law they say, and yet,
Somehow I never shall forget
How very much I owe
To you, who taught him how to grow.
You trained your son to look above,
You made of him the man I love,
And so I think of that today.
Ah! Ten with thankful heart I'll say,
'Our Mother.' (floral insert) and signed CSP

The back shows a gift inscription with the date, 1980, as shown in the final photo.
