A Working Vacation

My mom arrived for her annual visit. She said she would love to help with my projects. Bwa-ha-ha. I gave her a day to rest from her flight and put her to work.

Actually, she had less than a day. She brought some knitted hats for the kids and offered to make more if they wished. My daughter asked for one in purple, I had a coupon for the craft store, and you can guess the rest of the story.

When Mom takes a break from knitting, I have her sorting squares for quilt kits. While she is doing that, I work on one of the baby quilts for my great-nephews:

Mom mentioned that she is making refrigerator magnets for gifts and asked if I had any decorative boxes. I showed her this:

It’s a smidgen too small for her needs, so once she finishes the hat we’ll make fabric boxes – which just happens to be another project I’ve been working on. I won’t be selfish. She can take the ones she likes home with her.

And just in case she gets bored, there’s always something to do in the garden.
