I was going through some things in my sewing closet today when I came across this crewel piece I did for my Mother, I actually think it was Mother's Day when I gave it to her. When she opened it, there was a look on her face that she wanted to laugh, but thought she better not....until she no longer could hold it in and laughed until she cried.
Now this was my first attempt at transferring a pattern of any kind, but look, the handwheel of the sewing machine is on the left side. She always told the story, I made it that way because I was left handed. I could have blamed it on being young when I did it, but it has my married name in the signature....hmmm, was young when I married though.
She got the biggest kick out that and it hung in her sewing room for many years. I think I laughed just as hard today as she did the day I gave it to her.
Only a Mother's love..
Always quilt with love and passion.
