    Hello and welcome from southeastern Oklahoma. I have a lot of similiarities to my Mom and she passed away in 1988 at the age of 46. Somethings we just can't help. lol

    Hi.. and welcome from NY

    I wish I was more like my mom.. Even though she is not creative.. I take after my dad in that way.. My mom is awesome.. She is extremely kind, and thoughtful.. Every day I try to learn more from her.. I try to be as patient as she is.. I hope she will be around forever.. I feel like I never learned enough from my dad before he passed away at 84..

    Many of us have said this and I think we all do turn out somewhat like our mothers
    A friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you anyway.

    Welcome Fritzer1. Perhaps your Mother was a bit like you in her earlier life and you always had a lot more in common than you are now realizing.
    Sweet Caroline

    As I made my way in the world, I made a vow that I would NEVER be like my mother!

    Fast forward to me turning 40 and taking my first quilting class.
    As I started down the Quilting path, I found I had more in common with my mother.

    Now that I am past 50, I realize I am just like my mother except she does beautiful hand piecing that I don't seem to have time for.

    Thanks for letting me share.
    You sound like me. My mother and I haven't had the best relationship and I always said I wouldn't be like her. My mother was a very talented seamstress, and was a dressmaker working from home. I'm the youngest of three too and it was practically a requirement that we all learn to sew. I sewed when I was first married and the kids were younger but just didn't have time and stopped. Almost two years ago I took a quilting class and have been working on quilting since. My mother has never put a quilt together but several years ago she started making quilt tops at her church,
    hand quilting the tops.

    I feel like I got my sewing ability from my mom, but I don't think I'll ever be as good as she was. She told me not too long ago that she never had problems reading a pattern. I certainly don't have that gift!! lol
