Mother's Day Table May 2012

Recommended Posts

One year my Mom sat down and crocheted 3 table covers and 3 bed spreads. Each of her girls got a set, Me. my oldest sister and my youngest sister. They were all the same size, color and design. I never saw my Mom use a pattern. Oh and before I forget the bed spreads were all made to fit Queen size beds.

This is the table cover she made for me. My Mom always told me not to be sad when a loved one passes, but to tell stories about when they were alive, especially funny ones. Before you know it you are laughing and keeping the spirit of that person alive. She also told me that the Guardian Angels are Moms. They watch over you when you are young and keep watching till you can join them.

My table is dedicated to that one person in the family who is the one you go to for cuts, bruises and advice. Now adays she has added cheffor (sp?) to the mix of jobs she must do. In my day it was the old Heel and Toe Express.

On the table you will see all kinds of angels, even ones with little ones in their arms. There is also a new Mommy.

May is also the month for flowers. Now the April showers are gone the flowers can and will bloom. If you look around, you will see the baby flowers.

My Mom has been gone over 20 years now, but I still feel she is with me in times of stress and happiness.

Enjoy the table, give Mom a big hug for me.

:flowerHappy Mother's Day everyone.:flower

Another beautiful table Mary Jo. Your table cloth is exquisite! You have obviously inherited your talent from your beloved mother. Hope you all have a great Mother's Day on your side of the pond. Over here Mother's Day has been and gone - we celebrated in March.
