Mother Hen

There are eight children in my family.  One year for Mother's Day, I made this little quilted wall hanging for my Mom.  Isn't it so cute!  The pattern came from this book.

Book Club

This summer, our book club took it easy and we only did one book for the whole summer.  We read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.  It is a very sweet and cozy novel about the small island of Guernsey in the English Channel and how a book club banded together during World War II.  I give this one 5 stars.  It is definitely one I could read over and over like comfort food.

What did you enjoy for your summer reading?

A Gift from a Mother

My mother is my mentor and teacher when it comes to sewing.  She taught me how when I was a very young child.  She continues to sew beautiful creations. This one is a quilt she made for my brother and his wife for their anniversary.  She actually hand quilted it and it is amazing.  (I wish my photography could do it justice.)  The pattern came from this book
