My mom has always enjoyed creative pursuits...
cross stitch, crochet, sewing, crafts.
About a year ago, she decided to try her hand at wool applique. I kitted up a few small pillows for her to try and she whipped them up. This past winter she decided that she wanted to make a traditional penny rug.
I searched through Craft Corner and pulled together some wool that might match her entry way and sent them on their way. Mom didn't have a pattern, she just decided to wing it.
And look what she came up with!
Wow! Was I impressed!
I shouldn't have been surprised. Mom always does a great job in all her creative pursuits.
I like to think that I inherited a little of her creativity. :)
(And hopefully some of my Dad's talents, too. You can read about his creativity here.)
Mom purchased this beautiful swan while we were shopping at the primitive shows last month.
My sister affectionately named him Aflac :)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!
WE LOVE YOU!
I have to say that I have the best Mom in the world.
I have aspired to her example in raising my boys and in my creative pursuits.
Mom, I hope your day is filled with love, happiness and lots of wool :)
Can't wait to see what you create next!
