No exclamation point.
This is her 3rd birthday in "memory care" & she really doesn't know it is her birthday.
I made this little quilt for her 80th birthday -- just 6 years ago. Most of the fabrics were from my Grandma's -- Mom's Mom -- scraps dating from the 1930s. There are bits from doll dresses, clothing scraps, old lace & ribbon. I added several hankies, silk flowers, lots of buttons (some of them vintage) & lots of love. The little photo is my Mom on her 1st birthday.
I'll be remembering her today by taking my -- *our* -- quilt, "Skirting the Circle" over to the Quilt Festival offices.
Happy Birthday, Mom.
