Cake and Present time
I just love those top two of Mom in the process of candle-blowage and then afterward. The funniest part was that the wind blew the candles out before the cake even reached her.
Corynn strung beads with a REAL needle, ALL BY HERSELF (you know I am a mother of a youngster when I say ALL BY HERSELF) for a birthday present for Nanny. She worked on for almost two hours. She was so careful she didn't spill a single bead. She was so proud of herself and SO excited to give Nanny the present.
Remember that peachy, crocheted rose? Well-here is the unveiling. I made my mom a tablecloth for her birthday with a quilted top, appliqued tulips and embroidered stems. I folded it nicely, wrapped it with the crocheted peach rose and tucked in a gift certificate for a 30 minute massage. I am not sure how my mom will NOT do something for 30 minutes, but at 50 years old, I think she finally deserves a sit down.
Here is a close-up of the top.
