When I was young, my mom used to make these jeweled
Christmas tree portraits. Recently I saw this one at
a quilt show and it brought back so many memories
of my mom and made me miss her just a little bit
more that usual. She passed away Christmas Eve, 1999. I
think that may have been one of the worst days of my life
and since it happened on a holiday, I sort of relive it every year. Theres never a moment that I dont miss her. She taught me so much, needlepoint, latch hook, cross stitch, sewing, knitting, crochet, cooking, baking, you
name it, I have my love of creativity because my mom always had me doing something with my hands. I'm so grateful for the gifts she gave me.
I miss her so much.
Merry Christmas to you and your family..hold them tight and
tell them how much you love them everyday!
