I'm not too late, it's not Wednesday yet - here in the States anyway...so here's my Treasure this week.
It's a picture of me and my mum.
We don't have many, and I treasure this one. It's very tiny and pretty darn goofy and it sums up my mum perfectly. We went through some very tough times, but got over them, and now we're best buds. She looks at life through rose-coloured glasses, she can find good in anyone, and gets such delight out of life. She never met a stranger. She's the kind of grandma who pushes buttons on all the electronic toys at the toy store - as fast as she can, just to hear them all make noise at once. The kind of mum who gave me ice cream for breakfast. The kind of mum who had water fights with my dad through the kitchen window, him with the hose and her with a pitcher of water from the sink. And we all adore her. Head on over to Clare's Craftroom for more Tuesdays Treasures!
On the sewing front, I've been distracted.
Ever tea-dye fabric? I love it. And then there's a bit of mixing coming up....
See? Distracted. I hope it looks like what I have in my head - it's going to be a gift.
For those of you that pray, my mom's neighbor could use some. She was mugged last week, at the end of the street. She had just gotten off the bus after cashing her Social Security check. The guy ran at her, hit her and knocked her down. When she hit the pavement she lost consciousness, and lay there for 15 minutes before painfully picking herself up and walking to my mom's house. Mum called the police and ambulance - Ida is now in the hospital with 6 broken ribs, a broken collarbone, and concussion. She's 80 years old. Bless her heart.
