One of the highlights though, was the Mother's Day gift that my three year old 'made'. We participate in a homeschool preschool coop, and last week my friend Heather had the kids at her house. On Wednesday he had a little white paper bag with a present inside for me. I waited until Sunday to open it, and inside was the sweetest little gift.
|Next to the hand print is written my son's name and the year, but I edited out his name.|
The kids picked out their favourite colour for the hand print (my son's is apparently pink right now) and my super talented and did I mention generous friend Heather did all the rest. She is an amazing quilter, and hopefully soon I'll talk her into sharing with us for a Reader's Show Off post. The finished potholder measures 9 3/4" square, and the hanging loop is 3.5" long. I know I'll always treasure this, even after it's stained with years of dinner, and I'm logging it away in my brain for next year's Mother's Day gifts.
Happy (late) Mother's Day to all the women out there!
