finally I can show you this!

Have any of you been watching all of the "ladies" Carol has been making this year? Fabulous quilted portraits, many of them of quilters themselves. Well I decided several months ago that I wanted to have one made for my beautiful mom. Here's the picture I sent to Carol....

And this is what she made....
 I've had it for a while now, saving it for when Mom & Dad came to visit at Christmastime. It's a birthday present for Mom (her birthday is next week). Well, a few weeks ago Mom had a bad fall and broke her femur. She's such a good sport, working hard to get back to her normal, busy self, but there will be no long distance travel for them this Christmas. So I popped her lady in the mail and she opened her up yesterday....

This makes me so happy! Love you Mom, Happy Birthday! And thank you Carol for this awesome gift!
