We have been scattered to the winds for many years. Not one of us live in the same state or a state next to each other...CA, CO, TX & WA.
You will also recall that about a year ago, I made a pillow for my brother and it was made with a picture of him and my mom on the front and the back was an actual scarf that mom had worn.
I worried a bit because it was sent out so close to the first anniversary of her death that I didn't want him to have a heart attack.
Now, I felt the Lord was placing on my heart to complete a small lap quilt for my baby sister, so I put these fabrics together since I know she walks each year for mom and I added these two pictures to it.
This first one is of my mom, baby sister and mom's husband Gary and I used white glitter fabric paint that says: 'Momma's Baby Girl,' as she was the baby of the family. I centered this one in the quilt.
Then looking through old pictures I have, I added this one of my mom holding her cat Mickey and put on the picture, Mom 1942.
I am hoping today to add the outer border, batting and the back. Once it is complete, I am making her a pillow as well only this one will have Pink Ribbon fabric on one side and a beautiful floral scarf that belonged to mom on the back.
Then in the mail it goes with a card and a prayer that she will accept this with my love. It isn't meant to hurt her or bring us closer, it is just a sisters way of saying I hope this makes you feel closer to mom!
