Even after all these years, Mom still knows the way to my heart

Look what my mom sent me in a Valentine's package last week, along with a whole batch of totally deadly oatmeal/raisin/chocolate chunk cookies.

A tablecloth given to her by my great-aunt Frances:

And two aprons made by my great-aunt Evelyn. My mom remembers her doing the stitching on them in the early '60s:

And how clever is this? Negative-space cross-stitch hearts:

I want to try that myself!

Then I called to thank her and she said, "Really? You don't mind that I send you my junk?"

Oh, Mommy. You silly goose.

  1. The tablecloth is so pretty. I love how you can tell it was made by hand. Mommies are great.
