My quilt. Everyone in the family gets a quilt at some stage. Mine was a 21st birthday present, although it took so long to make, I think I got it for my 23rd. I requested black and purple, which is what I got.
I will never lack for lavender thingies so my clothes smell nice and moths are kept at bay.
My bed runner (yes, I stood on the bed to get the entire thing in frame... )
And matching cushions (there are two, but they're identical)
My Christmas wall hanging, which stays up all year long
Complete with angels
And happy little wise men!
There are also some Christmas tree decorations but they're all crammed into a bag somewhere...
She also makes bags and various accessories.
This one has a flower clasp
and lovely contrast lining
Mum also makes a LOT of things for craft stalls, charities, aid organisations, people on low income, etc. This includes clothing, knitted blankets, toys, children's quilts, and so on... A lot of these things are just donated or sold for a token price at church sales. These are some little stuffed animals for a church craft stall in a few months time.
I love this elephant.
And finally, the woman herself. My mumsie,
Aged 3 or 4 (check out those blonde curls!)
Aged 12, and, according to the back of the photo, wearing a STORE-BOUGHT SILK DRESS. Very exciting for a gal whose own mother made pretty much everything she wore. (Seriously. I'm from a long line of sewists.) She's with her sister here.
This is my favourite photograph of her. Aged 24. Great hair style.
This weirdo kept following her around on her wedding day. Oh, wait...
Why, who could that be?
Happy birthday and Mother's Day, Mumsie.
