Handmade past

This is a piece of Handmade Past. About 30 years ago my mother made this writing map. I fell in love with it immediately and I am sure it started of my interest in quilting !!! On the other side of the table she sat by me when I was doing my homework, and she was either doing knitting... or making something as beautiful as this, Happy memories !! Do you have a memory like this share it on you're blog.

  1. First-thank you for visiting earlier & leaving a comment - so appreciated! When I saw your appliqued house (Blackbird Designs) I was so tickled as that is the very project I have been preparing for...collecting fabrics, etc. Hope to start this winter. Just love it!
    Enjoyed reading your memory of sitting with your Mom while she knitted or stitched away. My own Mother (8) used to sew my clothes, make beautifully decorated eggs and ceramics. Sadly, she is no longer able to do that.

    I also like your Motivation to Live Well icon - something I have decided to do after my doctor's appointment last Tuesday!
