My mother is awesome. That’s all there is to it. She raised me to be strong, think smart, and shine my light as bright as I can. She’s coming to visit me in a couple of weeks and I can’t wait!
This ancient photo is from 1978, I think. I was 3 or 4 years old and my parents were a couple of years from parting ways. I don’t remember taking this family portrait, but I remember laughing hysterically at our collective hairdos whenever I looked at the picture. Though, I must say…my mother’s poodle fro is pretty fierce.
This week, I made another dresstangle (to accompany the feathered one I made for the VIP Fabric challenge) and added white trim to the neckline and armholes — inspired by the navy and white trimmed dress my mother’s wearing in the portrait.
Thanks for looking. And, Happy Mother’s Day to the Mom’s of the Sew Weekly Community!
