Little embroidery experiment I'm not sure I like...

For Mother's Day I started this little embroidered gift for my mum. I hurried to get it finished in time, but when I was just about done.... I wasn't sure I was happy with it anymore.
The 8 buttons represent her 8 children and grandchildren. The rest is basically just for fun.
I think it looks a bit messy and random. But I'm still not sure, because I also think it has a certain charm this way... I just don't know! Opinions please?! ;)

embroidery experiment... not sure about this one

Voor moederdag begon ik aan een klein borduurdingetje. Snel aan gewerkt want het moest op tijd af, maar toen ik bijna klaar was wist ik opeens niet meer of ik er nou blij mee was.
De 8 knoopjes staan voor haar 8 kinderen en kleinkinderen. De rest is eigenlijk alleen versiering.
Ik vind het er een beetje rommelig en willekeurig uitzien. Maar ik weet het ook niet helemaal zeker, want ergens vind ik dat ook wel weer wat hebben... Aaah! Ik weet het gewoon niet meer! Jouw mening graag?! ;)
