Anyway, what with my mom's knee surgery and all, I figured that she would need something to do that would require her to sit still. She's been doing a lot of knitting, but I wanted to give her the opportunity to mix it up a little bit. She used to make these purses where she would crazy quilt the top and then embroider all sorts of lovely stitches all over them. (I get my love of hand-stitching--actually, I get just about every crafty thing I do as well as a majority of my personality, quippy sayings, and general way of being--from my mom.) I don't think she's made one in a long while, so I thought I should remind her how awesome (and how much fun) they are.
Happy crazying, Mom!
