(It's THAT weekend in May again!!!!)

Happy Mothers Day to all of us....

I am fortunate to still have my mother....I will visit her this Sunday.

After a nice meal, we will probably sew...or I I listen to her or watch her doze...(she'll not like that if she reads this!)

Some of my earliest memories are of "hanging" around her while she was "trying" to sew.

Sometimes she wouldn't tell me what she was making until it was ready for me to try on....she sewed almost all of my dresses! (One exception, that I remember choosing from a shop window...I must have been 5 years old. It was pale blue, with short puffy sleeves and a big white collar. There were cut work tulips on the color and pale pink batiste inserted for a bit of contrast. I loved it! )
Most of the other dresses I remember were her creations...and sometimes she would make 2 alike so that my little sister and I could "match". (poor sister would then inherit a hand-me-down just like the one she had outgrown!)
Mom saved the dress scraps and planned making "sunbonnet sue" quilts for us...all of her enthusiam for quilting was passed on to me too....I have been blessed!

May you all find a lovely memory of your mother and/or spend some time with someone you love this weekend!

Happy Mother's Day to you Lila. My mother has been gone for a long time, but she used to sew all my dresses too. I felt really special when I got to go to the store and get one! She was always asking me how I got the one side of the bows in back to come loose. Never did figure that one out.

I wish you a happy Mother's Day, too, Lila. I'll be up in your area, celebrating the day with my very own dear mother.

Have a beautiful day with your Mother. I have such wonderful memories of my own Mom and was so blessed to have her.
Love your art doll/collage site!
