Good Morning, Quilters!
My Mom turned 93 this week–Happy Birthday and Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!
And Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there!
Let’s honor all Moms today by adding a Carnation to our quilting. The Carnation is the symbol of a mother’s love. The Carnation motif is available HERE and on (Page 56 in my new book) It is a great way to add a secret message in all your baby quilts!
My Mom taught my sisters and me how to sew and encouraged us from a young age to be creative. She signed me up for “Stretch and Sew” classes and drove me to all the lessons! (Does anyone remember Stretch and Sew–or am I just showing my age!?)
She was a firm believer in having good sewing tools. Her one great luxury was her BERNINA sewing machine–an 830. She also had Gingher scissors and really nice pins from Stretch and Sew.
Dorothy does not sew much anymore ( a few health problems)–which is a great frustration to her. Just the other day, while watching THE Cubs, she was really disappointed that she wasn’t sewing while she watched. But she does get a great thrill out of seeing what my sisters and I create!
I can’t thank her enough…and I have a surprise for her…to be revealed later this year and YOU will get to share in the surprise!
I would like to thank all the great Moms I know–my sisters, daughters and friends. You all serve as role models! Thank you!
OPEN LINE FRIDAY!
