I was cleaning out a bench in our bedroom that I've used to store craft supplies for a long time and came across this piece of work that I'm thinking I made 20 years ago, which would mean it was one of my first completed projects as an adult.

My sons would have been 4 and 2 at that time and so they weren't always able to express themselves clearly but I usually knew what they meant - that's why this caught my attention and I had to stitch it.  Why it ever got put in the bench I'm not sure.

Very pretty! My mom recently gave me a necklace with this saying on it, and it is so true.
