This is our mother on her 99th Birthday last June..
Since she is celebrating her 100th birthday this
coming June we are crafting a journal of her life.
She is an amazing woman.. still
running her own house, cooking,
cleaning, sewing beautiful pillows
and even writing her own checks..
She even washed the windows
on the outside of the house last fall.
Much of the time we spent together the past 4 days was on her journal.

It's hard work sorting out 100 years and including just the right information and pictures. Here is a picture of the mess we were into this weekend.

We managed to get some sewing done though.

Here is a picture of our niece with her apron that she made. She was with us this weekend also. Mom was with us, too, but she didn't make an apron. She worked on the journal giving us information - and there's a lot of it!


I am the crafter extraordinaire (on this blog anyway.) I live with my husband, my son, David, in a cozy cape cod style house in Connecticut.
