My Mom is great. She really is. She is so great, that for her 50th birthday, my sister-in-law gave her a granddaughter. And then for her 60th birthday, I gave her a grandson! Can you believe it? Two grandkids born on your birthday? August 24th is a busy day around our family.
So this may not be the "best" gift she's ever received, because how can you top two grandkids? But she says this is the best "non-living" gift she's received (from me, at least) and she's very happy with it.
Here she is holding it up. She didn't even want me to show her feet.
And here's the back.
I basically just traced around the existing lines for the quilting.
I also added a special note for her on the back:
"I love you, Mom! You're the best. <3 Sarah 2011"
I stitched this and then whip stitched it on to the back. I also had this great fabric that says, "I love my family" and "One big crazy family." These statements go great with our family.
I love you Mom! Happy Birthday!
