One of the greatest gifts my mom’s given me over a lifetime, is the hours and care she’s spent making things for me. Blankets, dolls, Christmas ornaments, graduation outfit, wedding dress, baby clothes…I can’t even begin to describe the amount of handmade goodness that she’s showered me with over the years. So today, on this celebration of moms across the country, I pay pictorial tribute to just the first few years of my own mother’s craftiness.
This outfit could be where my love of ric-rac came from.
Hand knit, ladybug skirt & top.
Then of course, there was the Rub-A-Dub Dolly series of matching outfits.
Thanks mom–I hope to give my own children even a thimble full of the handmade attention you gave me. I love you.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you crafty moms out there!
