Today is my beautiful Mother's birthday. I figured she would be a little upset if I posted pictures of her, so I'm posting old ones that are so cute she can't be mad!

I have so many things to be thankful for about my mom. I'm thankful that God chose her for me. I'm thankful that I was raised in such a loving family where God was always present. I'm thankful that she instilled a work ethic in me that makes me never want to sit still (I really am thankful for that!!). I'm thankful that she is Sydney's grandma. I'm thankful for the desire she gave me to create things. And most of all I'm thankful that I can now call her my friend.

This picture looks exactly like Sydney.

Here is what I made her for her birthday. I actually posted about this at Christmas in Progress a while back, but I just couldn't wait that long to give it to her!! Guess I'm even more behind on my CIP projects now! Anyway, it is a soldered charm on an adjustable necklace. One side has a paper collage in the log cabin quilt design. The other side says "nana quilted with love". These words were pulled from an old dictionary. My mom is an amazing quilter (among other things). She really should have her own blog - I'll start working on that! Hope you like it Mom! And I hope you have a wonderful birthday. I love you!
