Having a child is learning unconditional love. That alone is worth it, but the joy of motherhood is so much more, as any mother can attest. Alex is a great son. He's certainly not perfect and has habits and does things that drive me crazy, but they are outweighed by the good things. I have learned more than love and patience from him. He and I have great long discussions. How can one clearly delineate all the way a child is a blessing? I can't. Suffice it to say that he is indeed the greatest tangible blessing in my life.

I think I may end up redoing this one. It doesn't look quite right and after seeing the close up photo, I can see why. I think I need to find a different stabilizer or melt away to print my guide picture. I think the one I use slips, because stitches that look like they are totally connected aren't. Same thing for straight lines of stitches. I also need to refer to the larger photo more often!

LOL I asked my mom if she knew who this was and her first response was "Jackson?" Um, no, he won't be on my blessings list. His dad recognized him, at least.

Here's the photo I used to do this block:

I cropped out the background.

Yeah, definitely needs a do over.
