first love, first kiss, first smile, first words, first steps
mothers seem to be at the heart of them all
i'm lucky today, we're going to my mom's for supper
and i'm bringing it with me so she can rest and relax
i really wanted to make her a macaroni picture... the kind we used to make in grade school
seems every year we made something for mother's day
my kids did the same.... precious gifts
except when Doug was four and the plate he made for me was just a little bit too special
he had tears rolling down his face as he sobbingly told me he had made me something special that he was supposed to give me but he really wanted to keep if i wouldn't mind too much, please?
all the while holding it behind his back
i did what any of us would have done, asked to see it, admired it greatly, and told him the best present would be for him to keep it - he has it to this day
but back to the macaroni picture... didn't work out too well
so today i played around with a new technique we're doing in karen's lace class
my first attempt...
a little fiddly, but i love the results
and now i have something special to take to my mom that i made all by myself
happy mother's day mom!
