Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful mothers out there. Thought I'd share a photo of me and my mother, circa 1945. I was the first born. My parents had 3 more daughters later.
I got my love of sewing and doing creative things from my mother. She began to teach me to sew when she got her first electric sewing machine when I was about 8 or 9 years old. My most treasured quilt is this one that my mother embroidered and I hand quilted.
I am continuing to hand quilt my applique wall hanging. I began a new hand piecing project this past week. I am leading a group of quilters in a Sampler Bee. Our guild bees (sewing groups) are held after our guild meeting each month. I am beginning to hand piece The Farmer's Wife Sampler blocks. These will be 6" finished. Doesn't take long to hand piece a block. Here are the first two.
