Creative Memories!

Today is the birthday of one of my my most ardent blog readers - My Mom! I have put together just a very small collage of some of the things she has made for us as a family over the years! [Don't laugh at our glasses, hairstyles, earrings, etc. It was all very cool at the time!]My mom never went anywhere or watched anything without her knitting needles in her hands. She is a brilliant seamstress and used to make shirts for my son and dresses for my girls!Happy Birthday Mom! Looking forward to celebrating your birthday later at Bean Green!

Oh wow, what a very special tribute to an awesome lady!
I am very honoured to have one of your tapestry bags with one of your mom's tapestries.
The hairstyles and earrings are a hoot. I guess in 20 years' time we look back at today's photos and smile too.
Have a happy birthday celebration, eat something naughty on my behalf (-:

Happy Birthday Mrs Chevvy - hope you have lovely day and get thoroughly spoilt ! Joan & I so enjoyed seeing you again on our recent visit to SA.

PS. Dee, this is one of the few posts I feel I understand enough about to comment on ! Was very impressed to see you on the elephant yesterday - well done - was that on your bucket list ?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
Lovely photos of your family. It would be wonderful to meet your mother and exchange knitting secrets.
Have a wonderful day!

Happy Birthday to your Mom! It looks like she's made some amazing things - it's not surprising you're so clever with your hands as well.
