As the norm, I am making mother's birthday present . . . a pillow with a photo. Trying to select which picture was a tough choice. There was a picture of the group who went to see "Star Wars," pictures of the grandchildren, and a couple of miscellaneous group shots from different events. None of those struck me with any bright ideas. Then my sister sent me a picture and I decided that was the one.
This year the picture I am using is that of mother's darling baby boy as a four year old. (My little brother is now over 6 ft. tall and 50-something.) The black and white photo would work well with black and white fabrics, so the decision was made and I went to work.
