Sometimes being a mom and having a demanding career and strong sense of independence as an individual...It can all knock my world upside down!
Or make me feel like I am floating on water....My all time favorite photo of me and my oldest on Christmas morning a few years back...Boy do I miss this kid who is now my near-21 year old Kid....
Mom, LOVE YOU!!!!
What glory there is in being a woman! and I love the pics of Mary being supported by a child...is it literal or reminder that a child's heart and soul is a foundation for being our true potential?
Today I celebrate in this post the LOVE from my family and from CHARLOTTE! I received a package of incredible overflowing love and GODWINKS this week from her and I have waited for the moment to POST when I was inspired to do so....YEP, this morning was the moment I was waiting for!
I include the gifts together in the picture because of the marriage of my family in my home and in BLOGLAND as an uplifting experience of support and giving...All about what mothering is!
This past week my mom and sis were in Paducah and it was planned I would be there and then it did not pan out...Hard to receive texts from my mom of different photos and wanting to be with her....and if you note on this gift from Charlotte who lives across the ocean...The fabrics are from PADUCAH! as though she knew....... and how cute is this little mouse she has drawn on the love note? I am excited to play with it as a quilting pattern with Roxy....
Note that the Folklorico small print fabric is in the corner and from Charlotte. A week ago I went shoppign and randomly chose this large panel of fabric for a southwest future project.HMMMMMMM..same line !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do you think the little birdy in the flowers whispered to Charlotte? Thousands and millions of bolt of fabric and we chose from same line....
I bought this teal batik yesterday for an enlarged future project...The breathtaking batiks Charlotte mailed to me are going to be an enlarged quilt piece of this sweet book mark that encourages me to BELIEVE.....I am excited to put my spin on it! And underneath the fabric...a book, YEP, CHARLOTTE SPOILED ME!!!! I am going to incorporate the book's wisdom in posts on my blog, PERFECT material!!!
And as I BELIEVE in life and CELEEBRATE the book mark....I am working on a wonky border for my BOO-LIEVE Hallowistmas block....Look how fun the orange and yellow stars fabric at top of quilt go with it and it is a fabric from Charlotte.
I missed the detail that applique cannot be part of the block swap for Tonya so graciously she let me know and now the block is going to be a part of my 2011 Memory quilt with this block representing Mother's Day 2011....Little random but what is my focus for today's holiday! My favorite is the mummy escaping the gravestone and Santa asking us to Come and Adore Him from a selvage.... BOO-LIEVE will be in Unruly Lettering in Celebration of Tonya!
Happy Woman Mothering and Mother's Day!
