Today is my mom's birthday. She hasn't been with us for many years, but I always think of her on this day. As I was driving home this morning, thinking about how to celebrate her life, I came upon an estate sale.
Inside was a TON of good quilter's cotton, all pre-washed and ready to sew. I had stumbled on the "mother-load," so to speak! Although my mother never grew old, or sat at a sewing machine, she was big on supporting my sewing interest. She was also a great supporter of those in need.
So, in her honor, I bought most of the fabric. It will be donated to my quilting group who makes quilts for hospitals, nursing homes and recovery residences. This way, she can do what she would have done if she were still here--spread a little comfort to those in need.
