Where I come from, we commemorate the ones who have passed away before us several times after s/he died. We do it on the 3rd day, 7th day, 40th day, 100th day and the 1000th day after s/he passed.
The picture above is what my mom gave away to my father’s family and friends on his 1000th day, which fell on 20 March 1981. The handkerchief is my father’s name, which is hand embroidered by my mom.

My mom made this tablecloth a very very very long time ago. I admire her quality of work. The precision of each stitch, combined with colour combination, fulfil the intricacy of the whole design.

The original idea came from Indonesian Loro Blonyo (I have posted here about the story), but I drew them using mostly geometrical shapes. The drawings which I did about 10 years ago resulted in about a dozen of couples, inspired by traditional outfits from around the world.
My mother, whom I might say a hobbyist-turned-to-expert embroiderer, meticulously embroidered each of them, which in turn designed into tote bags. You can find the whole collections in my other website Widja Broderie.
