It was my mom-in-law's birthday yesterday so I can finally post a pic of her latest gift.
She travels a lot for work - well, she did when the gift was still just an idea. South Africa has not escaped the credit freeze and my mom-in-law will be taking a package and finally retiring at the end of this year. This is not a bad thing, despite forced retirement not being part of her plan. So she'll have to find other uses for the travel bags and compact mirror with monogrammed "E" that winged their way south for her birthday. I made them in some of her favourite colours and she seemed quite chuffed with them.
I'm also posting a pic of a gift that my mom made for me last year: an embroidered paisley cushion.
It's a shame not to show her work, because she really is so talented (and I need to show that I'm not biased). But she'd much rather be stitching than in front of a computer - fair enough.
