most of all i love the picture with my mom, my aunt plus a friend of theirs.
a little better close up of the friends. my mom is on the left and my aunt ruth in the middle.
my aunt ruth is one of the reasons for my being creative. she was an incredible seamstress and would occasionally make clothes for my sisters and i. plus she taught me how to use a sewing machine.
i love her and miss her.
sometimes when you have a chance to look back at your life you realize all the gifts that each individual gave you. i have been lucky, an aunt who was so creative and gave freely, sisters who encouraged that creative spirit in me and friends who enjoy what i create and most of all a husband who always gives encouragement to whatever project i have in mind.
and now on to the next...
