P. S. I hope you enjoy the Photos
My Mom 1954 dressed for the Policeman’s Ball in a dress her mother made for her.
She describes it as a purple velvet top with a purple taffeta skirt.
Costumes she made for her and my Dad for a Halloween party one year.
She even made the moccasins!
Each of our dresses she made to wear to my brother’s wedding
Sadly, the only photo I have of her at her machine and she has a pin in her mouth.
I wish I had taken more but we didn’t have cell phones with cameras handy back then.
A quilt she made me for my birthday the year my daughter was born 1980
A scouting expedition in Washington State for new craft ideas 1996
Another scouting expedition only in northern Alabama Mom, me and my brother David 2007
Baking the traditional Bellsnickle cookies at Christmas with some of her grandchildren
And I threw this picture in too because we also spent a lot of time either playing canasta or Kismet
here we are playing Kismet
I love my Mom, she has given me a lot of memories and she is a treasure!
