Celebrating 90

  Just a quick post today. My mother-in-law turned 90 last month. My sister-in-law called me the night before her party and asked me to make a banner using blue and yellow for her party. I was half way through when she called back to inform me that my mother-in-law was just admitted to the hospital and the party was cancelled.


I thought I would finish it anyway as I felt she could still have it hanging in her room.

 I have made many banners. This was the first time I added flowers to one. I used the Beautiful Blossom die.

 My mother-in-law is fine now for the time being. This is the third close call within the past year we came to losing her . She is a strong woman. Every time she recovers I think of her as a cat having nine lives. She is truly amazing.
