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!
