    I can't think of a better thing to do with my Mum than a full day of sewing and quilting!!!
    like you, My mum and I love to quilt and we enjoy spending a day together to do just that. 5 years ago we started up a Thursday night sewing group and we now have 5 in our little sewing group. We stopped for the summer, but we will be starting up again next Thursday night. I can't WAIT!

    It's so nice to hear how many of us have bonded with our mothers over a sewing machine. I see a baseball game on the TV in the background. My mom was from New Orleans, but LOVED the Cubs for some unknown reason! Now when I quilt & watch a ball game I can almost hear her cheer. Thanks for the smile today! :D

    Yes she is so cute, just goes to show you that age is just a word if we put our minds to work and want to do something you can do it. You should be very proud of you mother.

    jljack...does your mom want to adopt another:))W/a quilting set up like that...I'm up for grabs!!:))LOL Now that I have cleared my eyes w/all the mom stories..sniffle...I do have some serious questions for you. That is the joy??And, how do you like the handles (or mom) like that? Do you think they would be better down??And, the one I saw seemed short and now I am thinking 'duh'...you are to sit-right?? And, if you had to get one all over...would you still pick up this frame??Thanks much...! Now, I am going to call my mom...I think she needs a quilting set up too...:))LOL Skeat

    That picture is word a 1000 words. I would cherish it. My mom has been gone since 1988 seems like another life time. I tell people who have moms still enjoy every minute because you are so blessed.

    I was blessed with spending lots of time with my Mom before she passed. She was a sewer, not a quilter, but I did learn so much from her. I worked in a dry cleaner/tailor's shop she and my aunt ran and got paid 1 for each button I sewed back onto men's suits and ladies dresses. In those days, the cleaning solutions would ruin some of the fancier buttons, so I got to earn some "big" money! You'll carry your memories of your shared time for the rest of your life. Enjoy! Thanks for sharing.

    Had to join this thread...I grew up with a Mom that could sew a linen outfit, cross-stitch, knit...you name it! I didn't have the patience to hand baste a hem! Fast forward...I'm now teaching my mommy (who lives with me!) to quilt! I'll have her on the long arm (that she helped me obtain...so thankful!) before you know it! Thankful forever for these memories and this chance to be with her...thanks for sharing your story!

    Can you feel the love that this story brought forth? How lucky to still have your Mom with you. My Mom was 91 when she passed, still too soon. I have my Mom's picture over where I work and I can still hear her say, "Are you sure you want to do it that way, why not try this way". I probably will not remember all the things I learned from my Mom but I remember the Love. Hold tight to her and be sure she knows about all the love that is sent to both of you. Thanks for sharing.

    Boy you are so lucky! Hats off to Mom for proving you're never to old to learn something new.
