Friday Faces - "Suzie"

Here's a hand embroidered piece I finished today.
I hope to add a new character with a little story every Friday.
Let's see how it goes!

She was a child of the 1940's.
Her mother was an immigrant  
who impressed upon her daughter the importance of education.
She heard the words "you are intelligent, strong and capable"
throughout her childhood, and she grew up believing them.
When she was an adult, with a successful career,
she was thankful that her mother's influence had shaped her life,
and she honored her memory by doing the same
for her own daughter.

Here's wishing you
a wonderful weekend!
