More Mother's Day


Although I associate my mom with flowers, especially roses, she loved ALL flowers. I remember her lamenting the loss of her lilacs when she moved to Florida so I thought I'd sketch a lilac for her.

In addition, she is rarely without a crochet hook in her hand! She's fashioned layettes for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, sweaters for her daughters, the most comfortable SLIPPERS I ask for each year, tablecloths, bedspreads, pillows, placemats, etc. So I've sketched some crochet yarn and hook for her. I remember too a poem I wrote for she and my dad about 20 years ago -- it began "I remember Momma with a crochet hook in hand, weaving threads of color into gifts so grand ...."

Yep -- that's my mom!

Nice sketchy lilacs! I love the the combination of items in the drawing, it is enough information that my mind sees a shady front porch and porch swing on a lazy afternoon with the smell of lilacs wafting through the air and your Mother crocheting. My Grandmother missed her roses and Iris when she moved to Florida.

I love your lilacs and roses for your Mom.

I wish my mother had crocheted...I had to plead with a neighbor to teach me when I was a child. It sounds like you really hit on a nice memory with the great drawing.
