Mom's Coverlet

My mother has woven threads of love, strength, strong traditions and faithfulness that has knit our family together with ties that can never be broken. She is a strong, confident, and beautiful woman, and my best friend. She is very creative and I am sooooo proud of this coverlet that she crafted on her loom. The pattern is unbelievably gorgeous. I just can't say enough about it, and the picture really doesn't do it justice. Now, if I could just be patient enough to let her teach me.

Donations Drawing GIVEAWAY

I am Team Captain of our Relay For Life team "The Handmaiden's". My sister and I joined Relay For Life last year right after Mom passed away. It has been a very hard road and I still miss my mother sooo much. She was diagnosed with lung cancer and 5 weeks later she was gone. She was an amazing woman and my best friend. The photo's above were taken only days apart, and she passed away only a few days after these pictures were taken. My Mom and Dad still have a beautiful relationship, even though she's gone. We speak of her every day, and celebrate her life. We are accepting donations for our Relay For Life event, handmade item's for our Relay event auction, or an item donation of your choosing or monetary donations. After donating we will have a drawing and the winner will win an item or items from our Antique Store at "Ye Olde Homeplace". We greatly appreciate your help. You can reach my personal page by clicking the Relay For Life button on the left of this page or copy and paste this web address and our team page with this web address Please hurry!!! Relay is just around the corner! If you don't know what Relay For Life is you can read more about it on my Relay page.

Blessings to you all!
