Happy Mother's Day to All You Moms
The radio was the main form of entertainment when I was a kid. An occasional movie was a big treat - no electronics! There was never an abundance of money at our house, but I look back on my childhood and I love what I remember. We made our own fun - played on the riverbank, and the field across the road from our house was where all the kids in Rome (Illinois, that is) would get together and play ball - or fly kites. No organized play back then. We did not grow up as quickly as the young people do today. Although I do envy the choices that are so much better especially for girls in this day and age, there is much that I don't envy and am glad I grew up when I did. And I thank my Mom, and Dad, to, for the love and sacrifices they made for us and for keeping us warm, safe, our tummies full and headed in the right direction. Happy Mother's Day, Mom! And don't you just love Mom's cloche hat?
And an added note - I am going along great on the paper piecing now!! Just have the last five halves of the final blocks to piece. There are eight small pieces to do which go in the border. Hallelujah!!
