Mama's Memories - Bargello Quilt



A bit of trivia about our mama today........

This is mama (she's the blondie...before she let 
the white come out totally!!!!!) and her 
cousin who lives near Geneva, Switzerland.  

The picture was taken in February of 2007 
when mama was visiting her.  The quilt is the 
first one mama ever made....and she could 
only have done it with her cousin's help  
(cousin is an excellent quilter).




Happy Sunday, sweeties!!!!!!!

The Boys....Sammy and Andy

That's such a gorgeous quilt! Our Mommy used to sew, but she claims we are too much help. Can you imagine that?

Our Mommy quit coloring her hair last year and she is so happy!

It's a beautiful quilt. Sammy and Andy you guys have a wonderful mama who is quite talented.
Our mama is letting her coloring fade and the gray is coming in, she said it is about being herself.

Now you boys should be extra proud of your mommy because that is a breathtakingly lovely quilt.

My mommy said she wishes she could gather up the wherewithal to stop coloring her hair but she's still a slave to it, MOL.
