OMG! I almost forgot!

My mother's birthday falls in February, the short month. As usual it snuck up on me again and this morning I woke up thinking I've got to get her present in the mail. With President's Day, the mail will be a day or two late so I've got to get going. Now, what do I send her? In the past, if I was going to be there, I'd pick up a light fixture or kitchen faucet and install it. She's got everything she could ever need and if there was anything she wanted, she would just go buy it. You know, one of those hard to buy for people.

Well, there is this photo that family and friends will recognize. I decided to use that and create something. After a trip to the store for buttons and stuffing, but I am quite please with my little creation. Photo coloring is a little strange as it is a picture from 1976 and using Printed Treasures is always an adventure.

OK sis, what are you going to do?

When I first saw Christmas Favorites by Nancy Halvorsen, my favorite block was the Mistletoe Block. This week, BOM #6 came in the mail, and guess which one it was.

After completing the block, it is still my favorite. 6 blocks down and 4 to go.
