How can that be? My Mom never acts her age. Mom never looks her age. I love my Mom, she's so silly and so full of life and energy that she puts me to shame. Well, that is a saying, she never shames me of course...she's a good Mom.
So, I'm trying to surprise my Mom, she never gets to read my blog, so I get to put it out here ~ so everyone...SHHHH.
Many years ago, in the early 80's, Mom cut out some strips of material for a Log Cabin quilt. She didn't get it put together, so in the early 2000's, I put the top together. Thanks to Oak Lake quilters for showing me how! Now, we were going to hand quilt it together in the cool winter days, all snug and warm by the fireplace...well, it didn't happen either. What DID happen was time ticking by and Mom getting older by the minute! MY OH MY!
Now back to the quilt...here it is on my bed, just before I realized that the backing I bought was TOO SMALL! UGH! I had to buy all new backing. Not our favorite color, but it will work out just fine.
Can't wait to surprise her with this!
UPDATE ~ That quilting lady is an Energizer Bunny ~ she had the quilt done on Saturday already! Now to pick it up somehow and finish the binding!
