My mom taught me so much.
She told me I could do anything if I tried
She taught me to enjoy creating in all kinds of ways - sewing, crafting, cooking, music.She was an early-day Martha Stewart, recreating recipes & ideas from magazines with her own twist.
If it wasn't fun, she made it fun.
She made everything beautiful & found the best in everything & everybody.
She wasn't afraid to work hard & make things happen.
Often when I'm selecting fabric in the shop, I notice a piece she would love & think what she'd do with it. Or how she'd laugh at some. When new tools arrive, I think of how she'd improvise & achieve the same effect without buying the tool at all. Many times I wish I could show her a book or pattern.
I think of her everyday & remember her love.
I'm very lucky to have had such a wonderful mom.
