happy mothers day

to celebrate motherhood....ahhhh...sounds so nice...

firstly...thank ye, mama, for being a wonderful lady...always kind and helpful with an ear to listen and arms to hug!

i wanted to give my mama a hand-made gift and came up with this...


when i found the transfer (online for free download here) i got so excited! the three birdies represent my older sister, andrea (pink - since her son, landis, thinks she needs more pink in her life!), me (brown, since everything i own is brown), and lura, my younger sister (blues since she wears those colors often and they made me think of her!)

more detail: i decided (before i found the transfer) to make something out of stuff i already had...so as to not buy anything new. well, i did almost exactly that. i had all of the fabric, poly-fill, and piping. i did not have embroidery floss. so i bought that. a total of $3 spent. love it.

i gave it to my mama today and she loved it! so happy! she came to new jersey to help me with the kiddies while i had 3 recitals for my students and chris had band practice. she met up at 3pm for stella's recital...she played "dirty doggie"...a little rhythm tune. she was so nervous! but did a great job!

so now i am so very sleepy...don't know what is in store for tomorrow (prolly a whole lotta nothin')...but i do hope you honor your mama, and enjoy your mother's day.
