Happy Birthday, Mom!



Happy Birthday to the one who taught me to needlepoint.
And when that didn't stick, taught me to cross-stitch.
And even though I enjoyed that, she tried to get me to quilt.
And when all else failed to make me truly passionate
about needlework of some kind...ANY kind...

She took me to my first (and her last) knitting class.

So happy birthday to one of the few people in my family
who truly understands and appreciates the time and effort and love
that goes into a hand-made gift.




(Note the scarf. See! I DO finish things!)

And as hard as I tried, other things got in the way, so she knows there's another scarf coming. Made with Rowan Tapestry and it's FABULOUS. I'm so glad I ended up with some of this yarn for me, too. So more pics of that soon.

And a HUGE thank you to mom for not only allowing her picture to be taken, but graciously allowing me to post it here.

Love you, Mom!

I LOVE my new scarf - so thanks for the great birthday present - you did a great job! Not only gorgeous colors, but made of sari fabric to boot! Shades of my childhood!

Love, Mom
