We celebrated Mama's Birthday today!! It was a lot of fun. I made her a patchwork quilt from the California Girl fabric line. Joanna Figueroa has designed some of my favorite fabrics. If I ever win the lottery I will buy a piece of fabric from every design she has ever made and hang them on my wall. That's probably not even possible, but you get the idea. :)
I love my Mama and I wanted to make her a special quilt. She walked me down the aisle when I got married. She traveled 1500 miles to watch me graduate from the military. She traveled another 3,000 miles to visit me when I was stationed in California. We traveled to Germany together. When I was in college and had a night class, she rode with me and then slept/read a book in the car until my class was over - just so I would be safe. She taught me to cross stitch, crochet, cook, and she tried to teach me to sew (that's another story lol!).
My Mama is a cancer survivor. She can paint, play the piano, write. She is open minded to what others think, but firm in what she thinks is right.
She is full of life and laughter and it's no wonder that her nickname is Sunshine. She can light up a room by just smiling. She has spent her entire life being a Mama first and I love her. Happy Birthday Mama. :)
