    Some of you know that I taught my 84 years young mom to quilt. Her hands are not cooperating with her much any more, so she hasn't been doing too much sewing lately. She is now almost 87 years young.

    I called her this a.m. to ask what she was doing, and basically check up on her.

    Her answer: "Making mug rugs"! I didn't even know she knew what mug rugs were!!! LOL

    I just love her!!!

    Thanks, Crafty. I'll print out some of those for her to see. She is not a member here...in fact, she refuses to even try using a computer. So we print pictures, cute or inspirational e-mails, etc. to bring to her.

    My mom is just the same as yours! A young 89 and still quilting although her eyesight is not real good and it bothers her to think things don't look like they used to!
