Ginny was the first up and dressed for this day
She brought the sewing machine
out for a quick stitch
She knew she had to be fast as
Mother might come back at any time
Luckily Aunt Mary had sent
all that was needed
for sewing special gifts...
( Her butterfly on this pin cushion reminds
me of my own Mom
who is missed this Mothers Day xo )
Since Ginny's Mother worked during the day,
she and her sisters had time
to make extra special surprises for Mom
as well as outfits for their look alike paper dolls
Little animals could be made
from spools of thread!
The patterns from Cousin
Sharon came in very handy
and she shared her technique
for quilt making
Each sister secretly sewed three rows
Another gift for Mother was a stylish
Vogue black hat decorated with flowers
and modeled by Muffie (on backwards!)
Suddenly Wendy, wearing the very last group
effort ( a coat and hat set), heard Mom coming in
and putting the baby down for a nap!
Mom slipped on her happy bracelet
from last Mothers Day and entered the room!
She quickly spotted a Sparky planter
on the chair! She loved it!
Upon seeing the rest of the surprises,
Mother cried happy tears!
(The last gift was modeled by Wendy
and luckily she and Mom
are about the same size!)
